The EU operates like a bank where you can make deposits - but never recover what you pay in - either in terms of return on investment or loan interest. The Member State commitments to the EU are a one way street - and not just financially, but also in providing resources; civilian, military and research to assist the EU to meet its objectives - the total integration of the Member States into one single Federal entity (but nothing like the USA)
With a total commitment from the Member States not to stand in the way of the EU's ambitions.
The EU business model relies on using contributors' money etc. - to pay for EU propaganda; to fund Member State Media, Trade Unions, Schools, Universities and other institutions - in order to induce reliance and new recruits to the EEC -> EU project, and thereby establish a "dependence" on EU funding to supplement funding from central governments of the Member States (see table on the right, after "Guido Fawkes" May, 2016 (order-order.com) Funding also includes Scotland, Wales and N Ireland etc., and providing loan guarantees to new Member States. The EU redistributes our money to garner support.*

The EU Business Model
The EU is the world's biggest scam, and is even worse than a giant Ponzi scheme - through which the Member States pay in, and the EU uses the money (after skimming off the top for the elites; salaries, undocumented expenses, pensions, expensive wine cellar and their vanity projects) - and only scraps are handed back to the contributors. Everything given to the EU belongs to the EU; no Member State can claim any of the "EU's assets"; even though they funded them - as so eloquently stated by the EU team during the present negotiations.
Outside the EU
Other actions extend to the former Colonies of the EU Member States - for example, in Tanzania - Theresa May was trumpeting how British Aid was helping people in Africa:-
"Theresa May is right to focus on post-Brexit trading opportunities in Africa", (by Theo Clarke, Chief Executive of The Coalition for Global Prosperity, 29th August 2018 for Brexit Central)
But there is another side to the story coming from Africa
"Tanzania & Uganda stand up against unfair EU-East Africa trade deal" (Author Rosa Crawford Published date 07 Sep 2017) (https://www.tuc.org.uk/blogs/tanzania-uganda-stand-against-unfair-eu-east-africa-trade-deal)
So the EU is little better than some of the old Colonial powers in its dealings with African former Colonies; acting only for commercial gain with little concern for the well being of the populations of those countries; rather these countries are being "controlled" by the EU for its own interests.
Mrs May knows full well that there is no way that any deals that she "agrees" for the UK could possibly be ratified unless the UK leaves the EU with either a "No Deal" or "CETA" style deal; her deals need to be scrutinised to establish how such deals might tie the UK to the EU by the back door - the EU would not allow any external free-trade deals by the UK under either the Merkel - May "Chequers Deal" or by Remaining in the EU.
New Accession Countries
Loans to new Accession States are backed by state asset collateral from the new member - which is collected when that new member state defaults, after spending its "new found wealth" on German manufactured goods - as with Greece.
The EU has been merrily "shopping" around for new "mugs" to entice, and from whom it can secure more state assets and "lebensraum", but now it is reaching a tipping point because of the EU Referendum, June 23rd 2016, which threatens the withholding of funding for further expansion and loan guarantees.
We are currently (and have been for the past 45 years) a NET contributor, but there aren't many such others likely to be joining any time soon - only takers. Meanwhile, the EU backers and the International bankers just keep getting richer, as the EU acquires more assets and ever cheaper labour - but the contributing Member States just keep getting fleeced - whenever the EU needs more cash for its vanity projects and bribes to feed its expansion ambitions - like a giant Amoeba absorbing everything in its path; even if that means that personal bank accounts are accessed by the Eurogroup to fund short term bailouts.
None of the contributing members will ever receive back from the EU anything close to what they have handed over - that is, apart from certain core members, such as Germany. Germany is laughing all the way to the bank at the expense of the outer core members such as Spain, Portugal and Greece, where they have induced mass unemployment, through enforced austerity, in order to keep the value of the Euro low to gain massive advantage for their manufacturing exports - these too will be asset stripped and politically neutralised within the EU, as Germany seeks to concentrate more power.
The Real Cost of Membership
The real price of being in the EU though is the huge loss of independence and freedom of action - as a reward for our contributions the Member States individually have no real say in how the EU develops, and under the current British political system the UK is complicit in a great deceit upon its own population - we can play the EU Parliament tick-box game, where we endorse or reject laws handed down to us.
But those handing down those laws (elected by their own populations) have sworn an Oath of Loyalty to the EU, which overrides their Oath to their own people. Meanwhile, the Council of Ministers and the ECJ are required to act in the interests of EU's "Ever Closer Union" - so in the end the EU gets its own way, as more and more power is acquired at the expense of the Member States.
Referendums, that the EU does not currently prevent, are simply ignored if the results don't suit their agenda; slowly and surely power is centralised, and the very social structure is dictated from the EU. Voting rights are systematically controlled (QMV), as the EU membership increases, in order to diminish any real oppositions to EU plans, as its membership list rapidly increases - some openly and well publicised.
The more controversial additions (such as those included in the Barcelona Agreement (1995) (which will give the EU's "Four Freedoms", and benefits from EU countries, to those in North Africa and the Middle East) are kept low key.
To add insult to injury our overseas aid is also controlled by the EU and we are required to financially support the low paid in other Member States; subsidise foreign cheap labour in the UK through our benefit system (courtesy of New Labour's Working Tax and Child Tax Credits)
Effectively, payment upon payment to the EU, as money directly from our own taxpayers is piled upon our contributions, which provide cheap labour for "Fat Cat" organisations in the UK - and every contribution we make is abused, as a neoCommunist redistribution of wealth from the UK taxpayers to the rest of the EU.
The EU Legacy
We can see all around us the rotten fruits of being in the EU - from Housing shortages to excessive demands upon our infrastructure and public services - including the requirement for UK taxpayer's to pay for the building of HS2 - an EU (Trans European Network) project which we have no control over - not even on its route - at a time when we are also required to meet EU targets *Maastricht Treaty(1992)) through austerity, which create even further demands on our resources.
The government's answer to the EU austerity and EU induced, overstretched public services is to increase taxes those who have contributed the most to the country - the UK pensioners.
The programmes for the future of the EU are well documented within the Foreign and Commonwealth Office advise to Ministers - FCO:30/1048 and the EU Treaties. Though these "EU plans" are never discussed nor debated with the Member State populations.
The EU progresses through the gradual changes to the voting system and through the transfer of power (Competences in EU (French) legal speak), in a gradual, yet complete, surrender of all Fiscal and Financial: under a Common Currency; Common Immigration and Asylum; Legal, Social, Military, Criminal and Civil Law to the EU - leaving the member states impotent and administered (top-down) by a single government in Brussels (Berlin).
At which point, or on-route, EU Nationalism will rise from its currently hidden store room and dominate all future activities of the EU.
As Monnet stated:
Adrian Hilton - paraphrased Monnet's intentions regarding the EEC(EU) in the following comment;
*Note: Over 1 million Euro to the Remain campaigning CBI; over 7 million Euro to the Institute for Fiscal Studies; over 18 Million Euro to the LSE etc., over the past 9 years: RSPB though contacted the "Guido Fawkes" website "...to stress they do not have a position on the referendum because neither side is campaigning on the environment."
