PURPOSE: to present Draft Amending Budget (DAB) No 1/2019 aimed at entering in the 2019 budget the surplus resulting from the implementation of the 2018 budget year.
CONTENT: the purpose of this PBR is to enter in the 2019 budget the surplus resulting from the implementation of the 2018 budget year.
As provided for in the Financial Regulation applicable to the general budget of the Union, the surplus is the only subject of this DAB and it has to be submitted within 15 days of the submission of the provisional accounts at the end of March 2019.
The implementation of the budget year 2018 shows a surplus of EUR 1 802 988 329, which is therefore entered as revenue in the 2019 budget.
Budgeting the surplus will diminish accordingly the total contribution of the 28 Member States to the financing of the 2019 budget. The contributions by Member States will also be influenced by the updated own resources forecast which will be available after the Advisory Committee on Own Resources meeting in May 2019 and included in a subsequent Draft Amending Budget.
The Commission implemented 99.8 % of the authorised payment appropriations. The amount not implemented was EUR 322 million, of which EUR 120 million of the Emergency Aid Reserve.
The under-implementation of the other institutions of EUR 76 million was lower than in the previous three years (EUR 83 million in 2017, EUR 103 million in 2016 and EUR 94 million in 2015).
