The aim of this paper is to test three incremental models on United Arab Emirates budgeting for the period of 1972-2010. The models are the magnitude of change, stability, and budget revenue. The data was obtained from ministry of finance’s publication entitled Leading Financial Visions: 40 Years of Achievements. The findings confirm the use of incremental budgeting by the decision makers in UAE. Environmental factors seem to have an impact on budgetary outcomes.
