Rebate

For the period 2014-2020, the Netherlands  receives a reduction on its contribution to the EU budget worth around 1 billion euros. However, reductions are only payable once the decree which mentions them has been ratified by all member states. The decree in question was ratified recently and so the rebate will be payable retroactively in 2017. This rebate has not been included in the figures, unless specifically stated otherwise.
