Protecting the European Union's financial interests
The European Union (EU) has its own budget to finance Europe's policies. The revenue side is made up of customs duties, value added tax and a share of the gross national income of EU countries. The Union's financial interests are protected not only by OLAF, but by a battery of anti-fraud regulations.
