The Treaties of Brussels on 8 April 1965 in Luxembourg and on 22 April, 1970, ended the existence of five Budgets in favor of a single budget. The budget of the European Union represents the statement of revenue and expenditure for the financial year in progress. The EU budget is limited to 1% of EU GDP. The EU itself does not levy any tax.

The revenue of the Union mainly consists of own resources which are added to miscellaneous income. The mechanism of own resources was introduced on April 21, 1970. There are four such tax revenue scollected and made available to the Commission by Member States.

According to Article 203 of the TEC, the phase of budget preparation falls within the jurisdiction of the European Commission, while the voting phase is the responsibility of the European Parliament and Council of Ministers. The budget must then be implemented by the Commission under the control of Parliament.
