Commission adopts draft amending letter to draft amending budget no. 6/2013
As the amount of customs duties paid into the EU budget over the first eight months of the year until August is significantly below what had been expected, the Commission is proposing to amend, through an amending letter, its earlier proposal for an amending budget on estimates of own resources.
The other main amendments proposed are the budgeting of new fines that have become definitive in the meantime and interest. This proposal does not increase the EU budget, it only compensates the shortfall in traditional own resources (EUR 2,062 million) with a corresponding amount revenue from the new fines and interest and from the GNI resource.
