All Member States apart from the UK finance its rebate. The distribution key for financing is based on each country’s share of the EU’s GNI (see Table 2 for an example based on the GNI forecast used in Draft Amending Budget 6/2013). However, some Member States benefit from a reduction in the financing of the rebate. For 1985-2001, Germany paid two thirds of the share determined for it by the distribution key. Since 2002, Austria, Germany, the Netherlands and Sweden have benefited from a permanent reduction in their contribution to the rebate, paying 25% of their respective share.
