It depends which year is under discussion, and whether it is the gross or net figure.
Currently http://researchbriefings.parliament.uk/ResearchBriefing/Summary/CBP-7886 says this
"The UK's contribution to the EU budget
Published Tuesday, August 8, 2017
In 2016/17 the UK made an estimated gross contribution (after the rebate) of
£12.2 billion. The UK received £4.1 billion of public sector receipts from the EU, so the UK’s net
public sector contribution to the EU was an estimated £8.1 billion"
The day before the same page had these figures for 2015/16 were £13.6 billion gross, £10.8 billion
