Page Contents

This page provides an overview of the relevant publications about the EU budget. They are divided in three categories:

  • reports: official documents produced mainly in the framework of the adoption, implementation or reporting of the EU annual budget;
  • brochures: publications aimed at a more general audience, presenting information about different aspects of EU budget and funding;
  • factsheets: short informational materials on specific topics, presented with visuals and infographics.

The publications are organised by year, according to the year of publication and not necessarily to the budgetary year to which they refer (e.g. a report on budgetary year 2017 will only be published in 2018). For an overview of all the phases of the budgetary cycle, see also:
