Abstrakt: One of the main sources of financing investments in the public sector are preferential loans or guarantees granted under European funds. The article presents the current legal system for the implementation of financial instruments, legal and systemic issues that hinder the use of this form of support, including the overlapping of financial instruments of two financial perspectives, and a proposal for new legal solutions aimed at simplifying the implementation of financial instruments in the 2021-2027 financial perspective.
