EXPLANATORY STATEMENT

 

While there is a general understanding that an orderly withdrawal of the United Kingdom (UK) from the Union on the basis of the Withdrawal Agreement is the best outcome, the EU continues to prepare for all possible outcomes, including a withdrawal without an agreement. A withdrawal without an agreement would leave the budgetary relations between the Union and the UK without agreed legal arrangements. This would create considerable uncertainty and difficulties for the implementation of the Union’s budgets for 2019 and 2020, for all UK beneficiaries and in some cases also for beneficiaries of the other Member States.

The purpose of this proposal is to extend to 2020 the contingency framework under Regulation (EU, Euratom) 2019/1197 approved by European Parliament on 17 April 2019. The aim is to minimise the most significant disruptions for beneficiaries of EU spending programmes and other actions at the time of withdrawal and until the end of 2020. It would allow for an orderly budget implementation of the legal commitments with the UK and UK entities signed or adopted before the date of withdrawal or between the withdrawal date and the end of 2019, in application of Regulation (EU, Euratom) 2019/1197.

The proposed provision for the possibility to maintain the eligibility to benefit from Union financing for the UK and UK entities throughout 2020 is subject to the condition that the UK makes a written commitment to contribute to the financing of the budget for 2020 under the terms set in this proposal. In addition, the UK should commit in writing to accept the controls and audits which cover the entire implementation period of the programmes or the actions.
