Britain’s 2bn EU bill

From Proportionate Response:

“The payment is the UK’s portion of the total amount required to run the EU and is split between the different states roughly in accordance with their economic power.  The amount due from each state is revised annually to reflect changes in VAT and GNI, two core measures of government receipts from growth.  These VAT and GNI figures are provided to the EU by the respective governments, in this case the UK government.”
