The EUIPO is entirely self-financing. All its operations are paid for through registration feels, meaning that neither the Office nor its work places any additional financial burden on the EU or its taxpayers. The EUIPO's official financial reports include the budget, the annual accounts, the report on budgetary and financial management and the report from the European Court of Auditors, as well as documentation related to the work of the Budget Committee of EUIPO.
