The European Parliament adopted by 619 votes to 20, with 58 abstentions, a resolution on the Council position on Draft amending budget No 8/2015 of the European Union for the financial year 2015, Own resources and European Data Protection Supervisor.

Parliament recalled that this draft amending budget concerns:

a revision of the forecast of Traditional Own Resources (customs duties), the budgeting of the remainder of the 2014 VAT and GNI balances, the budgeting of the 2015 VAT and GNI balances.

Draft amending budget No 8/2015 furthermore foresees a reduction of EUR 123 474 in both commitment and payment appropriations in the budget of the European Data Protection Supervisor .

It results in a decrease in GNI-based contributions from Member States of EUR 9.4 billion.

Refugee crisis : Parliament took note of Draft amending budget No 8/2015, as submitted by the Commission, and of the Council's position thereon and underlines that substantial additional financial means are necessary to address the current refugee crisis .

It noted that Member States' financial pledges for the Africa Trust Fund, the Syria Trust Fund and to UN agencies supporting refugees have not yet been met and deplored that according to Commission data Member States were lagging behind by EUR 2.3 billion at the beginning of November 2015.

It noted that further financial efforts will be needed to provide humanitarian assistance along the transit routes and to manage the challenges posed by the reception of unprecedented numbers of refugees in Europe's cities and regions.

Lastly, Parliament deeply regretted that no firm compromise could be reached in conciliation to use the reflow from Draft amending budget No 8/2015 to address the refugee crisis. Nevertheless, it expects that Member States will fully honour their previous commitments.

As a result of this revision, the proposed DAB includes the following elements:

the upward revision (EUR 800 million) of the forecast of traditional own resources (customs duties); the budgeting of the remainder of the 2014 VAT and GNI own resources balances (EUR 5.7 billion); the budgeting of the 2015 VAT and GNI own resources balances (EUR 1.4 billion). an update of the forecast for other revenue (EUR 1.5 billion); a reduction of EUR 123 474 in both commitment and payment appropriations in the budget of the European Data Protection Supervisor is also included in this DAB.

The overall impact in terms of revenue is a decrease in the GNI based contribution of EUR 9.4 billion.

PURPOSE: to present Draft Amending Budget No 8 to the general budget 2015.

CONTENT: this Draft Amending Budget (DAB) No 8 for the year 2015 concerns the following:

a revision of the forecast of Traditional Own Resources (customs duties); the budgeting of the remainder of the 2014 VAT and GNI own resources balances; the budgeting of the 2015 VAT and GNI own resources balances; an update of the forecast for other revenue; a reduction of EUR 123 474 in both commitment and payment appropriation in the budget of the European Data Protection Supervisor. On this matter, it was decided to take a prudent approach and request the necessary appropriations to cover for the most expensive scenario, i.e. the replacement of both EDPS members (the new European Data Protection Supervisor and the Assistant). However, the former Assistant EDPS was appointed as the new EDPS, and consequently a part of the temporary allowances will remain unused (EUR 56 160). Furthermore the Management Board of the Translation Centre reimbursed a total of EUR 67 314 to the EDPS this year. This extra assigned revenue was not foreseen in its estimates, and will reduce accordingly the need for fresh appropriations.

Accordingly, the overall impact in terms of revenue, is a decrease in the GNI based contribution of EUR 9.4 billion.

It noted that Member States' financial pledges for the Africa Trust Fund, the Syria Trust Fund and to UN agencies supporting refugees have not yet been met and deplored that according to Commission data Member States were lagging behind by EUR 2.3 billion at the beginning of November 2015. It noted that further financial efforts will be needed to provide humanitarian assistance along the transit routes and to manage the challenges posed by the reception of unprecedented numbers of refugees in Europe's cities and regions. Lastly, Parliament deeply regretted that no firm compromise could be reached in conciliation to use the reflow from Draft amending budget No 8/2015 to address the refugee crisis. Nevertheless, it expects that Member States will fully honour their previous commitments.

  • The European Parliament adopted by 619 votes to 20, with 58 abstentions, a resolution on the Council position on Draft amending budget No 8/2015 of the European Union for the financial year 2015, Own resources and European Data Protection Supervisor.

    Parliament recalled that this draft amending budget concerns:

    • a revision of the forecast of Traditional Own Resources (customs duties),
    • the budgeting of the remainder of the 2014 VAT and GNI balances,
    • the budgeting of the 2015 VAT and GNI balances.

    Draft amending budget No 8/2015 furthermore foresees a reduction of EUR 123 474 in both commitment and payment appropriations in the budget of the European Data Protection Supervisor.

    It results in a decrease in GNI-based contributions from Member States of EUR 9.4 billion.

    Refugee crisis: Parliament took note of Draft amending budget No 8/2015, as submitted by the Commission, and of the Council's position thereon and underlines that substantial additional financial means are necessary to address the current refugee crisis.

    It noted that Member States' financial pledges for the Africa Trust Fund, the Syria Trust Fund and to UN agencies supporting refugees have not yet been met and deplored that according to Commission data Member States were lagging behind by EUR 2.3 billion at the beginning of November 2015.

    It noted that further financial efforts will be needed to provide humanitarian assistance along the transit routes and to manage the challenges posed by the reception of unprecedented numbers of refugees in Europe's cities and regions.

    Lastly, Parliament deeply regretted that no firm compromise could be reached in conciliation to use the reflow from Draft amending budget No 8/2015 to address the refugee crisis. Nevertheless, it expects that Member States will fully honour their previous commitments.

    This DAB concerns mainly the revision of the forecast of own resources that the Commission undertakes before the end of October each year.

    As a result of this revision, the proposed DAB includes the following elements:

    • the upward revision (EUR 800 million) of the forecast of traditional own resources (customs duties);
    • the budgeting of the remainder of the 2014 VAT and GNI own resources balances (EUR 5.7 billion);
    • the budgeting of the 2015 VAT and GNI own resources balances (EUR 1.4 billion).
    • an update of the forecast for other revenue (EUR 1.5 billion);
    • a reduction of EUR 123 474 in both commitment and payment appropriations in the budget of the European Data Protection Supervisor is also included in this DAB.

    The overall impact in terms of revenue is a decrease in the GNI based contribution of EUR 9.4 billion.

    On 10 November 2015, the Council adopted its position on DAB No 8/2015 as set out in the annex to the explanatory memorandum to the Council position on DAB 8/2015 (see technical annex to the Council position).

  • PURPOSE: to present Draft Amending Budget No 8 to the general budget 2015.

    CONTENT: this Draft Amending Budget (DAB) No 8 for the year 2015 concerns the following:

    • a revision of the forecast of Traditional Own Resources (customs duties);
    • the budgeting of the remainder of the 2014 VAT and GNI own resources balances;
    • the budgeting of the 2015 VAT and GNI own resources balances;
    • an update of the forecast for other revenue;
    • a reduction of EUR 123 474 in both commitment and payment appropriation in the budget of the European Data Protection Supervisor. On this matter, it was decided to take a prudent approach and request the necessary appropriations to cover for the most expensive scenario, i.e. the replacement of both EDPS members (the new European Data Protection Supervisor and the Assistant). However, the former Assistant EDPS was appointed as the new EDPS, and consequently a part of the temporary allowances will remain unused (EUR 56 160). Furthermore the Management Board of the Translation Centre reimbursed a total of EUR 67 314 to the EDPS this year. This extra assigned revenue was not foreseen in its estimates, and will reduce accordingly the need for fresh appropriations.

    Accordingly, the overall impact in terms of revenue, is a decrease in the GNI based contribution of EUR 9.4 billion.
