Calculation of the uniform call rate for VAT own resources (Article 2(4) of Decision 2000/597/EC, Euratom):

Uniform rate (%) = Maximum call rate – frozen rate

A. The maximum call rate is set at 0,50 % for 2004.

B. Determination of the rate frozen by the correction of budgetary imbalances granted to the United Kingdom (Article 2(4)(b) of Decision 2000/597/EC, Euratom):

1) Calculation of the theoretical share of the countries with a restricted financial burden:

In accordance with Article 5(1) of Decision 2000/597/EC, Euratom, the financial contribution of Germany (DE), the Netherlands (NL), Austria (AT) and Sweden (SE) is restricted to a quarter of their normal contribution.

Formula for a country with a restricted financial burden, for example Germany:

Germany’s theoretical VAT contribution = [Germany’s capped VAT base / (EU25 capped VAT base – UK capped VAT base)] x 1/4 x United Kingdom correction

Example: Germany:

Germany’s theoretical VAT contribution = 9 451 381 000 / (45 507 318 170 – 8 387 322 500) × 1/4 × 5 391 559 038 = 343 195 613

2) Calculation of the frozen rate:

Frozen rate1 = [UK correction – theoretical VAT contributions (D + NL + A + S)] / [EU25 capped VAT base – capped VAT bases (UK+ D + NL + A + S)]

Frozen rate1 = [5 391 559 038 – (343 195 613 + 80 641 182 + 38 683 932 + 43 971 713)] / [45 507 318 170 – (8 387 322 500 + 9 451 381 000 + 2 220 805 000 + 1 065 330 000 + 1 210 952 000)]

Frozen rate1 = 0,210821947849923 %

C. Determination of the rate frozen by the correction of budgetary imbalances granted to the United Kingdom (Article 2(4)(b) of Decision 94/728/EC, Euratom]:

1) Calculation of the theoretical share of the countries with a restricted financial burden:

In accordance with Article 5(1) of Decision 94/728/EC, Euratom, the financial contribution of Germany (DE) is restricted to two thirds of its normal contribution.

Calculation formula for Germany:

Germany’s theoretical VAT contribution = [Germany’s capped VAT base / (EU15 capped VAT base – UK capped VAT base)] x 2/3 x United Kingdom correction

Example: Germany:

Germany’s theoretical VAT contribution = 9 451 381 000 / (44 053 080 500 – 8 387 322 500) × 2/3 × – 293 991 119 = – 51 938 184

2) Calculation of the frozen rate:

Frozen rate2 = [UK correction – theoretical VAT contribution (D)] / [EU15 capped VAT base – capped VAT base (UK + D)]

Frozen rate2 = [– 293 991 119 – (–51 938 184)] / [44 053 080 500 – (8 387 322 500 + 9 451 381 000)]

Frozen rate2 = – 0,00923359477705029 %

Frozen rate tot = Frozen rate1 + Frozen rate2

Uniform rate = Maximum call rate – Frozen rate tot

0,50 % – 0,201588353072873 % = 0,298411646927127 %

Council Regulation (EC) No 1260/2001 of 19 June 2001 on the common organisation of the markets in the sugar sector (OJ L 178, 30.6.2001, p. 1).

Under the common organisation of the market in the sugar sector, sugar producers pay basic and B production levies to cover market support expenditure.

However, the application of a ceiling to the levies as provided for in Article 15 of Regulation (EC) No 1260/2001 may lead to their not fully covering the estimated total loss due to the existence of an exportable surplus calculated in accordance with paragraphs 1 and 2 of the said Article. The complementary levy referred to in Article 1 1 6 of this chapter will then have to be paid by sugar producers in accordance with Article 16 of Regulation (EC) No 1260/2001.

Forecasts from 2003 onwards are net figures (without collection costs).

Remarks

Article 39 of Council Regulation (EC) No 1260/1999 of 21 June 1999 provides for financial corrections for which any revenue is entered in Item 6 5 0 0 of the statement of revenue. This revenue may be used to provide additional appropriations in accordance with Article 18 of Council Regulation (EC, Euratom) No 1605/2002 of 25 June 2002 on the Financial Regulation applicable to the general budget of the European Communities (OJ L 248, 16.9.2002, p. 1) in specific cases where they are required to cover the risk of corrections adopted earlier being cancelled or reduced.

Regulation (EC) No 1260/1999 lays down the conditions for the repayment of payments on account which does not have the effect of reducing the contribution from the Structural Funds to the operation concerned. Any revenue arising from the repayment of payments on account entered in Item 6 1 5 7 of the statement of revenue will be used to provide additional appropriations in accordance with Articles 18 and 157 of Regulation (EC, Euratom) No 1605/2002.

The special programme for peace and reconciliation is continued, in accordance with the abovementioned decisions of the Berlin European Council, to provide EUR 500 million for the new period of validity of the programme. Additionality is to be fully observed. The Commission is to submit an annual report to the European Parliament on this measure.

Measures to combat fraud are funded under Article 24 02 01.

Legal basis

Remarks

This appropriation is intended to cover ESF Objective 1 measures for commitments relating to the new programming period (2000 to 2006).

Under Article 3 of the EC Treaty, in defining and implementing other Community policies the Community is to aim to eliminate inequalities, and to promote equality, between men and women.

Structural Fund appropriations can therefore be used only if the measures which they finance accord with the provisions of the Treaties and with the legal acts adopted pursuant to the Treaties, particularly those concerning environmental protection and equality between men and women.

Legal basis

Regulation (EC) No 1262/1999 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 21 June 1999 on the European Social Fund (OJ L 161, 26.6.1999, p. 48).

TITLE 05

AGRICULTURE AND RURAL DEVELOPMENT

Overall objectives

The objectives of the common agricultural policy (CAP) derive directly from the Treaty and are, in particular, to stabilise markets, ensure a fair standard of living in the farming community and guarantee security of supplies.

The CAP has been reformed a number of times since it was first introduced, most recently as part of Agenda 2000. The key aim of that reform was to shift the slant of the farm economy towards the market in order to make the agricultural sector more competitive. Reflecting the multipurpose application of agricultural activity, the CAP must also be fully compatible with sustainable development, in particular by promoting environmentally friendly production methods and the effective use of resources. Rural development, the second pillar of the CAP, aims at enhancing the competitiveness of rural areas and preserving the environment and rural heritage in order to secure the future of rural areas and promote job maintenance and creation.

In 2004, priorities similar to 2003 will be pursued, in particular as regards the mid-term review of the CAP, the WTO negotiations and the completion of material preparations for enlargement (preparation of the operational application of the acquis, pre-negotiation of rural development programmes and intensive contacts with national administrations). These priorities are in addition to the regular activities of CAP management.

Remarks

Article 39 of Council Regulation (EC) No 1260/1999 provides for financial corrections, any revenue from which is entered in Item 6 5 0 0 of the statement of revenue. That revenue may give rise to the provision of additional appropriations, in accordance with Article 18 of Council Regulation (EC, Euratom) No 1605/2002 of 25 June 2002 on the Financial Regulation applicable to the general budget of the European Communities (OJ L 248, 16.9.2002, p. 1), in specific instances where they are necessary to cover risks of cancellation or of reductions in corrections previously decided upon.

Regulation (EC) No 1260/1999 determines the conditions for repayment of an advance without having the effect of reducing the contribution from the Structural Funds towards the assistance concerned. Any revenue from the repayment of advances, which is entered in Item 6 1 5 7 of the statement of revenue, will give rise to the provision of additional appropriations in accordance with Articles 18 and 157 of Regulation (EC, Euratom) No 1605/2002.

The special programme for peace and reconciliation is continued, in accordance with the abovementioned decision of the Berlin European Council to provide EUR 500 million for the new period of validity of the programme. Additionality is to be fully observed as a condition for continuing this programme. The Commission is to submit an annual report to the European Parliament on this measure.

Measures to combat fraud are funded from Article 24 02 01.

TITLE 11

FISHERIES

Overall objectives

This policy area includes all the activities covered by the common fisheries policy (CFP) which comes under the exclusive competence of the Community. It concerns all fisheries activities as well as the processing and marketing of these products.

It also ensures that the relevant provisions of Community law are rightly applied in the fisheries sector.

The policy area covers five operational activities: specific measures in support of the CFP (including conservation of fisheries resources, control and dialogue with fisheries sector), relations and agreements with third countries and international organisations, common organisation of the fisheries market, fisheries research and structural measures for fisheries through the Financial Instrument for Fisheries Guidance (FIFG).

Sixty percent of appropriations is devoted to the Financial Instrument for Fisheries Guidance (FIFG). However, the FIFG operations are mainly implemented by the Member States as a part of decentralised management.

Remarks

Article 39 of Council Regulation (EC) No 1260/1999 provides for financial corrections, any revenue from which is entered in Item 6 5 0 0 of the statement of revenue. That revenue may give rise to the provision of additional appropriations, in accordance with Article 18 of Council Regulation (EC, Euratom) No 1605/2002 of 25 June 2002 on the Financial Regulation applicable to the general budget of the European Communities (OJ L 248, 16.9.2002, p. 1), in specific instances where they are necessary to cover risks of cancellation or of reductions in corrections previously decided upon.

Regulation (EC) No 1260/1999 determines the conditions for repayment of an advance without having the effect of reducing the contribution from the Structural Funds towards the assistance concerned. Any revenue from the repayment of advances, which is entered in Item 6 1 5 7 of the statement of revenue, will give rise to the provision of additional appropriations in accordance with Articles 18 and 157 of Regulation (EC, Euratom) No 1605/2002.

The special programme for peace and reconciliation is continued, in accordance with the abovementioned decisions of the Berlin European Council, to provide EUR 500 million for the new period of validity of the programme. Additionality is to be fully observed. The Commission is to submit an annual report to the European Parliament on this measure.

Measures to combat fraud are funded under Article 24 02 01.

Remarks

This appropriation is intended to cover FIFG Objective 1 measures for commitments relating to the programming period 2000 to 2006.

Particular importance will be attached to the economic diversification of regions affected by a reduction in fishing activity, to the adjustment of fleet capacity and to fleet renewal, without involving an increase in fishing efforts.

Actions financed under this article should take into account the need to maintain a stable and enduring balance between the capacity of the fishing fleets and the resources available, and the need to promote a safety culture within fishing.

This appropriation is also intended to cover the financing of actions to improve fishing gear selectivity.

Legal basis

Remarks

Article 39 of Regulation (EC) No 1260/1999 provides for financial corrections for which any revenue is entered in Item 6 5 0 0 of the statement of revenue. This revenue may be used to provide additional appropriations in accordance with Article 18 of Council Regulation (EC, Euratom) No1605/2002 of 25 June 2002 on the Financial Regulation applicable to the general budget of the European Communities (OJ L 248, 16.9.2002, p. 1) in specific cases where they are required to cover the risk of corrections adopted earlier being cancelled or reduced.

Regulation (EC) No 1260/1999 lays down the conditions for the repayment of payments on account which does not have the effect of reducing the contribution from the Structural Funds to the operation concerned. Any revenue arising from the repayment of payments on account entered in Item 6 1 5 7 of the statement of revenue will be used to provide additional appropriations in accordance with Articles 18 and 157 of Regulation (EC, Euratom) No 1605/2002.

The special programme for peace and reconciliation is continued, in accordance with the decisions of the Berlin European Council to provide EUR 500 million for the new period of validity of the programme. Additionality is to be fully observed. The Commission is to submit an annual report to the European Parliament on this measure.

Measures to combat fraud are funded from Article 24 02 01.
