Total commitment and payment appropriations, EU budgets for 2021 and 2022.

This second annual budget under the 2021-2027 MFF for the Union of 27 Member States, was set at €169.51 billion in commitments (1.14 % of EU-27 GNI) and at €170.60 billion in payments (1.14 % of EU-27 GNI). In absolute numbers, by comparison with the 2021 budget this represents an increase of 1.6 % in commitments, with 59.3 % of this increase the result of the mechanism under Article 5 of the MFF (see Box 1), and an increase of 1.5 % in payments (Figure 9). The level of payments stands for a second consecutive year above the level of commitments, reflecting the ongoing implementation of many spending programmes launched under the 2014-2020 MFF. The margin below the 2021-2027 MFF ceilings available for unexpected needs in 2022, amounts to €1.16 billion in commitment appropriations and €1.69 billion in payment appropriations (for detailed figures, see Annex 3).
