About this site
The Netherlands Court of Audit provides information on this website about the European Union's budget: about how much money is concerned, where it comes from, what it is spent on and how it is accounted for.
We hope this site will increase openness and transparency about the implementation of the EU budget and help improve the regularity of the use of EU funds.
This site uses information published by the European Commission and the European Court of Auditors, subject to the conditions of eur-lex. We specifically requested and received permission to use this information.
The figures we present on this site on EU expenditures and receipts and on the member states' remittances and receipts are based on the European Commission's reports on its implementation of the EU budget.
The information presented on the European Court of Auditors' regularity opinion is derived from its annual reports.
The texts on this site are based on the EU Trend Reports we have published over the past ten years on developments in the financial management of the EU in the Netherlands, the EU member states and the EU as a whole. The texts on this site are concise summaries of a number of our main findings.
