Memorandum on the audit and approval of the 2015 EU accounts


In this memorandum, Rigsrevisionen informs the Public Accounts Committee of the main conclusions presented in the European Court of Auditors’ annual report for 2015, the special reports published by the European Court of Auditors and the European Parliament’s approval (discharge) of the accounts. The last section of the memorandum sums up Rigsrevisionen’s audit of EU funds in Denmark in 2016.

In its annual report, the European Court of Auditors concludes that the consolidated ac­counts of the European Union are correct, but continue to be affected by too many errors in the underlying payments.

The European Parliament has approved the 2015 EU accounts, but has also pointed out that the European Union is facing a crisis of confidence and has called upon the EU institutions and Member States to share responsibility for restoring confidence in the institutions of the EU.
