The EU budget is complex and Audits are implemented to check that accounting processes work properly and the resulting accounting data are complete, correctly recorded and properly presented.

If the EU institutions and the Member States want to achieve the full potential of the EU budget to invest in Europe’s future, there needs to be a concerted effort to improve its effectiveness. For improving the EU budget’s potential to invest in the future of Europe by reducing errors, paying correct claims more quickly, investing in projects and measuring the returns on those investments to ensure they deliver and add value.

If the Commission, authorities in the Member States or independent auditors made use of all information available to them, they can prevent,  detect  and correct a significant proportion of the errors before these were made.

The results of audits of the European Union agencies and other decentralised bodies are reported in specific annual reports, which are published separately, together with a summary of the results.
