Budget funding

Since 1970 the European Union Budget has primarily been funded with own resources, tax revenues allocated to the European Union on a permanent basis and which correspond in its own right without the need for subsequent decision by national authorities.

Budgetary funding is governed by the Decision on own resources, a rule that also sets down budget size.
