EU Membership costs

We're waiting for Curtis Taylor to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear UK Statistics Authority,

I understand the UK contributes to the EU budget through three sources:

• it collects customs tariffs and levies on behalf of the EU. 20% of the tariffs collected are kept by Member States to cover the cost of collection.
• it contributes a percentage of its VAT base.
• it contributes a percentage of its Gross National Income (GNI).

Could you please advise of the GBP amounts for each of these methods for the last 5 years? If 5 is too much work, then the last 3 years?

If you do not hold this information, could you please advise of which Government department it is I need to contact?

Many thanks in advance.

Yours faithfully,

Mr Curtis Taylor
