Fiscal consequences of the abolition of sugar levies
From October 2017 the European Union envisages the abolition of the socalled
sugar quotas and minimum prices for buying sugar beet. As a consequence of
these changes the sugar levies paid by the sugar factories of the Member States will
cease to apply. The article identifies the fiscal effects of the abolition of these levies.
The European Union and the Member States will lose some of their budget revenues.
The structure of Member States’ burdens for GNI payments will also change as well
as their operating balance relative to the EU budget. Through the change Poland will
gain, whereas some large net contributors will lose, i.e. the Netherlands, Sweden and
the United Kingdom.
Keywords: sugar levies, sugar market, EU budget, net contributors and beneficiaries.
