Payments in 2022 are1.5 % higher than in 2021. Unusually, they are also 0.6 % higher than commitment appropriations – for a second year in a row. This reflects the continued transition from the previous to the current MFF. The 2022 financial year therefore includes the amounts needed to pre-finance programmes under the new MFF, but also the necessary payments to meet needs linked to the closure of the 2014-2020 period. This has had the biggest effect on spending under subheading 2a Economic, social and territorial cohesion (see Figure 11).
