The European Parliament,

 having regard to Article 314 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

 having regard to Article 106a of the Treaty establishing the European Atomic Energy Community,

 having regard to Regulation (EU, Euratom) 2018/1046 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 18 July 2018 on the financial rules applicable to the general budget of the Union, amending Regulations (EU) No 1296/2013, (EU) No 1301/2013, (EU) No 1303/2013, (EU) No 1304/2013, (EU) No 1309/2013, (EU) No 1316/2013, (EU) No 223/2014, (EU) No 283/2014, and Decision No 541/2014/EU and repealing Regulation (EU, Euratom) No 966/2012[1], and in particular Article 44 thereof,

 having regard to the general budget of the European Union for the financial year 2021, as definitively adopted on 18 December 2020[2],

 having regard to Council Regulation (EU, Euratom) No 2020/2093 of 17 December 2020 laying down the multiannual financial framework for the years 2021 to 2027[3] (MFF Regulation),

 having regard to the Interinstitutional Agreement of 16 December 2020 between the European Parliament, the Council of the European Union and the European Commission on budgetary discipline, on cooperation in budgetary matters and on sound financial management, as well as on new own resources, including a roadmap towards the introduction of new own resources[4],

 having regard to Council Decision 2020/2053/EU, Euratom of 14 December 2020 on the system of own resources of the European Union[5],

 having regard to Draft amending budget No 3/2021, which the Commission adopted on 15 April 2021 (COM(2021)0270),

 having regard to the position on Draft amending budget No 3/2021 which the Council adopted on 21 June 2021 and forwarded to Parliament on the same day (09904/2021 – C9‑0232/2021),

 having regard to Rule 94 and 96 of its Rules of Procedure,

 having regard to the report of the Committee on Budgets (A9-0218/2021),

A. whereas Draft amending budget No 3/2021 aims to enter in the 2021 budget the surplus from the 2020 financial year, amounting to EUR 1 768 617 610;

B. whereas the main components of that surplus are a positive outturn on revenue of EUR 1 647,3 million and an under-spending in expenditure of EUR 121,3 million;

C. whereas on the revenue side, the surplus is predominantly driven by a higher than expected collection of customs duties;

D. whereas on the expenditure side, under-implementation in payments by the Commission reaches EUR 100,98 million for 2020 (of which EUR 61,7 million under Heading 5 - Administration, attributable to COVID-19 pandemic’s impact on missions, meetings, traineeships and recruitments), and EUR 120,38 million the under-implementation by the other institutions;

1. Takes note of Draft amending budget No 3/2021 as submitted by the Commission, which is devoted solely to the budgeting of the 2020 surplus, for an amount of EUR 1 768 617 610, in accordance with Article 18(3) of the Financial Regulation, and of the Council´s position thereon;

2. Reiterates its position that all available means and unused money in the Union budget, including the surplus, should be used to swiftly deploy financial assistance to those most affected by the COVID-19 pandemic; calls, in this context, on Member States to devote the expected reductions in their GNI-based contributions stemming from the 2020 surplus entirely to the budgeting of actions related to tackling the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and to the recovery and resilience of the Union, to ensure an optimal allocation of the funds;

3. Approves the Council position on Draft amending budget No 3/2021;

4. Instructs its President to declare that Amending budget No 3/2021 has been definitively adopted and arrange for its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union;

5. Instructs its President to forward this resolution to the Council, the Commission, the other institutions and bodies concerned and the national parliaments.
