Explanation please.

A % of the contributions are calculated by the respective countries' own VAT rates. UK has a high VAT rate so pays more contributions than others for that part. 

Corporation tax matters as can be seen with Ireland's difference between their GNI and their GDP.

Compensated for by the non agricultural payments parts of the rebate.

Cheers. 2007 figures I'd imagine the Irish would be closer to equilibrium now. Shows our VAT + corporation rates would matter hugely in the setup phase. 
Ireland just became a net contributor, last year I think

The EU uses a harmonised VAT rate in its calculations to ensure countries with higher VAT rates aren't penalised.

Your second paragraph makes no sense.

Sorry I misread that bit. You are correct it's just a result of paying an equal percentage of a larger VAT income.

How doesn't the second paragraph make sense? Ireland's very low corporation tax rate is why it's GNI is significantly lower than its GDP.

Today's a new day.   I apologise for the use of colourful language but it was born out of frustration at silly questions you were asking.    

I had a wee skim through your posts - about how you love Britain and hate Sturgeon.     There's absolutely nothing wrong with that.    The independence question tends to be driven by emotions ultimately, and no amount of evidence will ever make you vote for a normal Scotland.     But please don't belittle Scotland with the idea we cannot run ourselves, that we'd face enormous austerity,  that we'd not be allowed into the EU or forced to join the Euro.     

The UK is one of the most in debt nation states in the world but I don't think for a second it's not a viable as a going concern.     No one here is questioning how the UK's going to balance the books post-brexit.     The UK is viable,  Scotland is viable.    Drop the Too wee Too stupid thing, eh?  

 
Bet he can't yell you why he hates Sturgeon.

Hate is a strong word. I have never hated anyone I haven't met so I don't know where you get the idea I hate her. I dislike opinions that I don't agree with, like everyone on this forum does, so I prefer my own opinions and don't denigrate others who don't by name calling or otherwise.

Hate is indeed a strong word.   A word you used when you started your recent 'Love or hate Coldplay' thread.    Good also to know you don't engage in denigration or name calling.....

......except you do.   

I didn't say I hated them...

Why the f**k are the SNF******P wasting time on a referendum debate when the country's arse is falling out. These p***ks should get on with the job they were elected to do and stop fannying about with their wolfie smith politics.

I never said I hated anyone there either.
