In the financial year to the end of March 2019, the UK gross contribution to the EU was just under £20.4 billion and, after the rebate, it was over £15.5 billion.
This comes from a Treasury report on the Consolidated Fund Account 2018-19, issued last week.
In the report it says:
"Payments to the budget of the European Union (EU) increased by £2.6 billion, from £12.9 billion in 2017-18 to £15.5 billion in 2018-19."
And you can see the relevant figures at the bottom of this table of contributions from 2012 onwards.
The figures here are a combination of data from two Treasury reports. One on 2018-2019 and one that deals with previous payments.
The gross figure on the left is what the calculations say we should pay, then the UK abatement is deducted to leave the total contribution in the centre column and when the amount we receive back from EU programmes is applied we get the figure on the right, which is the eventual net amount we pay in.
For the financial year 2018-19 shown at the bottom of the table, once the UK abatement, better known as the rebate, is applied our total contributions in the financial year to April 2019, were £15.5 billion, which is over £2.5 billion more than the £12.9 billion we paid in the financial year to the end of March 2018.
I have no actual figures for the amount we got back from..
