On 30 July 2014, the Commission adopted the consolidated annual accounts of the EU for the financial year 2013. They provide a comprehensive view over last year´s EU finances. The EU annual accounts comprise financial statements of the EU and aggregated reports on the implementation of the EU budget in 2013. Although the audit of these accounts has not been completed yet, it is worth highlighting that the previous six EU annual accounts received a "clean bill of health" from the external auditor, i. e. the European Court of Auditors. This indicates that the information in the 2013 consolidated accounts of the EU should provide again a solid and accurate basis for the accountability of financial actors involved in the financial management of the Union´s budget.
