The study discusses an extremely actual problem of the expected changes in the state and development perspectives of the agricultural companies under the influence of the already negotiated support mechanisms by the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) of EU. Using the developed methodological approach and based on analysis is outlined the influence, which the direct payments will have on the economic state and sustainability of the agricultural companies, and the incomes of rural households. The study is carried out by typology of the agricultural companies, in order to count the different impact and the multi-directional effect of the CAP implementation. The directions of restructuring of the agricultural companies depending on their specialization, size and juridical status are also outlined.
