Amending budget No 1/2019: 2018 surplus

13-09-2019

Draft Amending Budget No 1/2019 (DAB1/2019) enters the surplus resulting from implementation of the 2018 budget into the EU's 2019 budget. The 2018 surplus totals over €1.8 billion, as compared to €0.56 billion in 2017. It consists mostly of higher than expected revenues and underspending on the expenditure side. Inclusion of the surplus will reduce the Member States' contributions to the 2019 EU budget accordingly. The European Parliament is expected to vote on the Council position on DAB1/2019 during its September 2019 plenary session.
