Details

The European Parliament adopted by 540 votes to 109, with 38 abstentions, a legislative resolution on the draft Council Regulation on the calculation of the own resource based on plastic packaging waste that is not recycled, on the methods and procedure for making available that own resource, on the measures to meet cash requirements, and on certain aspects of the own resource based on gross national income.

The proposed regulation aims to set the rules under which Member States make the own resource based on non-recycled plastic packaging waste available to the Commission.

The regulation covers primarily the rights and obligations of the Member States and of the Commission in the levying, collection, and transfer of the amounts due of the plastic levy, a statistics-based national contribution. It includes provisions on the conservation of documents, administrative cooperation, entry into the accounts and reporting, the calculation method, treasury and accounting arrangements, adjustments of previous years, the bringing forward of twelfths, late payment interests and comitology procedures.

Parliament approved the Council's draft subject to amendments calling for the deletion of provisions that would create a rapid review procedure to resolve any disputes that may arise between a Member State and the Commission concerning the amount of any adjustments to the statements relating to the own resource based on non ‑ recycled plastic packaging waste or concerning whether an alleged failure to provide data can be attributed to a Member State.

Opinion No 5/2018 of the Court of Auditors.

The financing system for the EU budget has not been significantly reformed since 1988. The Commission has proposed changing this financing system for the future budget under the 2021-2027 Multi-annual Financial Framework (MFF) by:

- reforming existing own resources, which will make up 87 % of EU revenue: keeping TOR but with lower rate of collection costs, maintaining the GNI-based own resource and simplifying the own resource based on VAT;

- introducing a ‘basket’ of three new own resources, which together will make up 12 % of EU revenue: one based on the Common Consolidated Corporate Tax Base (CCCTB), one based on the European Union (EU) Emissions Trading System (ETS) and one based on plastic packaging waste that is not recycled;

- phasing out the corrections that exist in the current system;

- increasing the ceilings for own resources to overcome the impact of Brexit and the integration of European Development Fund (EDF) into the EU budget, as well as to cover financial liabilities linked to loans or financial facilities guaranteed from the EU budget.

Assessment

The proposed new EU financing system took on board a number of the key principles of the reform, but not all and the financing system remains complex. It is of the opinion that a single regulation with a comprehensive set of own resources provisions would simplify the system and make it more transparent.

After having assessed the Commission's proposals, the Court of Auditors considers that the proposed own resource based on the EU ETS does not create an additional incentive for Member States to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. In addition, it is not a stable resource since the auction prices of the emission allowances are highly volatile. In addition, the quality of the data used to calculate the own resource based on plastic packaging waste should be improved.

Lastly, as regards the proposed new own resources, the audit powers in respect of those based on the CCCTB and plastic packaging waste may be restricted.

Recommendations

The Court of Auditors recommends that the Commission re-examine its proposals for new own resources and take the following measures:

- CCCTB-based own resource : the Commission should carefully assess the likelihood of this resource coming into existence during the next MFF and the implications of any delay;

- EU ETS-based own resource : the Commission should clarify in its proposal that this resource does not create an additional incentive for Member States to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. It should also analyse the impact of the volatility associated with this source of revenue;

- plastic packaging waste-based own resource : the Commission should analyse how the amounts expected to be collected from this resource may decrease due to changes in the behaviour of households and economic operators.

The financing system for the EU budget has not been significantly reformed since 1988. The Commission has proposed changing this financing system for the future budget under the 2021-2027 Multi-annual Financial Framework (MFF) by: - reforming existing own resources, which will make up 87 % of EU revenue: keeping TOR but with lower rate of collection costs, maintaining the GNI-based own resource and simplifying the own resource based on VAT; - introducing a ‘basket’ of three new own resources, which together will make up 12 % of EU revenue: one based on the Common Consolidated Corporate Tax Base (CCCTB), one based on the European Union (EU) Emissions Trading System (ETS) and one based on plastic packaging waste that is not recycled; - phasing out the corrections that exist in the current system; - increasing the ceilings for own resources to overcome the impact of Brexit and the integration of European Development Fund (EDF) into the EU budget, as well as to cover financial liabilities linked to loans or financial facilities guaranteed from the EU budget. Assessment The proposed new EU financing system took on board a number of the key principles of the reform, but not all and the financing system remains complex. It is of the opinion that a single regulation with a comprehensive set of own resources provisions would simplify the system and make it more transparent. After having assessed the Commission's proposals, the Court of Auditors considers that the proposed own resource based on the EU ETS does not create an additional incentive for Member States to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. In addition, it is not a stable resource since the auction prices of the emission allowances are highly volatile. In addition, the quality of the data used to calculate the own resource based on plastic packaging waste should be improved. Lastly, as regards the proposed new own resources, the audit powers in respect of those based on the CCCTB and plastic packaging waste may be restricted. Recommendations The Court of Auditors recommends that the Commission re-examine its proposals for new own resources and take the following measures: - CCCTB-based own resource : the Commission should carefully assess the likelihood of this resource coming into existence during the next MFF and the implications of any delay; - EU ETS-based own resource : the Commission should clarify in its proposal that this resource does not create an additional incentive for Member States to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. It should also analyse the impact of the volatility associated with this source of revenue; - plastic packaging waste-based own resource : the Commission should analyse how the amounts expected to be collected from this resource may decrease due to changes in the behaviour of households and economic operators. type: Court of Auditors: opinion, report body: CofA

BACKGROUND: this initiative is part of the broader legislative package on own resources which the Commission is proposing together with a Regulation laying down the multiannual financial framework for the period 2021-2027. It includes the Own Resources Decision referred to above, a new implementing measures’ Regulation for all Own Resources, current and new, and an amendment to the Regulation for the Value Added Tax based Own Resources. As a reminder, the proposed new Own Resources Decision introduces three new Own Resources, based on the Common Consolidated Corporate Tax Base, on the EU Emissions Trading System and on Plastic packaging waste that is not recycled. It is necessary to lay down the provisions necessary to determine the arrangements and procedures under which the Member States make these new own resources available to the Commission. The proposed Regulation would complement Council Regulation (EU, Euratom) No 609/2014 laying down measures for the implementation of the European Union's own resources system, which will remain applicable to existing own resources. CONTENT: the practical arrangements proposed in this Regulation implement the system set out in the proposed Own Resources Decision, and complement the current system for Own Resources by adapting it to the new Own Resources. In concrete terms, the proposed Regulation deals with: the calculation, establishment and making available of the new Own Resources; conservation of supporting documents; administrative cooperation; accounts to be kept for Own Resources, the timing for making them available and for making corrections and adjustments; where necessary, provisions concerning cash requirements. The proposal establishes the calculation of the applicable rate for the Own Resource based on Gross National Income , complementing Article 5 of Regulation (EU, Euratom) No 609/2014. The amount of Gross National Income should be calculated once the amounts of all the other Own Resources and of the financial contributions to supplementary research and technological development programmes and other revenue are known. This would ensure the residual character of the Gross National Income Own Resource.
