  • PURPOSE: to present the Draft Amending Budget (DAB) No 2/2018 entering the surplus for the financial year 2017.

    CONTENT: the aim of this DAB is to enter in the 2018 budget the surplus resulting from the implementation of the budget year 2017.

    As provided for in the Financial Regulation applicable to the general budget of the Union, the surplus is the only subject of this DAB and it has to be submitted within 15 days following the submission of the provisional accounts at end of March 2018.

    The implementation of the budget year 2017 shows a surplus of EUR 555 542 325, which is therefore entered as revenue in the 2018 budget.

    The budgeting of the surplus will diminish accordingly the global contribution of the Member States to the financing of the 2018 budget. The contributions by Member States will also be influenced by the updated own resources forecast (Traditional Own Resources (TOR), Value Added Tax (VAT) and Gross National Income (GNI)) including the updated amount of the UK correction which will be available after the Advisory Committee on Own Resources meeting in May 2018 and included in a subsequent Draft Amending Budget.

    The implementation by the Commission reached 99.9 % of the authorised payment appropriations. The amount not implemented was EUR 201 million, of which EUR 99 million of the Emergency Aid Reserve. The under-implementation of the other institutions of EUR 83 million was lower than in previous two years (EUR 103 million in 2016 and EUR 94 million in 2015).
