EU Farm subsidies: the Commission intends to increase aid transparency


The Commission has today adopted a proposal designed to apply new rules with regard to the publication of information on the beneficiaries of European agricultural funds.


Commission to recover €215 million of CAP expenditure from the Member States


A total of €215 million of EU agricultural policy funds unduly spent by Member States is being claimed back by the European Commission today under the so-called clearance of accounts procedure. However, because some of these amounts have already been recovered from the Member States and the Commission is reimbursing Spain following a Court ruling on a previous disallowance decision, the net financial impact of today's decision will be some €94 million.
