Own Resources of the EU budget, 2000-2021

Some of the key EU budget resources are sourced at a national level, prompting some experts to talk about ‘genuine own resources’ as a subtype of the EU own resources. This shows the difficulty of using the label ‘own resources’ in relation to the mix of revenues currently included under its umbrella. This difficulty is enhanced by the change in the proportion of GNI-based resources over time (Fig. 5). The perceived ownership of the resources becomes even more problematic to articulate, given that the Parliament is probably the only parliament without power over taxation.
