The British Compensation

This is established to reduce the excessive budgetary imbalance (difference between the amount contributed to the budget and the funds received from it) considered. The amount of compensation is roughly equivalent to a third of its budgetary balance. The other countries assume the burden of what is not paid by the United Kingdom in proportion to their GNI, although four of them (Germany, Austria, the Netherlands and Sweden) only finance 25% of what would correspond to them in an initial distribution, while the remaining 22 Member States pay the amount that these 4 countries save in proportion to their GNI.
