Afaik, the member states bears the costs and gains the incomes from borders. At least, I have never heard it mentioned otherwise regarding the Swedish-Norwegian border, or the incomes of the European union.

Wiki:EU "own" resources funding of budget
Traditional own resources[21] are taxes raised on behalf of the EU as a whole, principally import duties on goods brought into the EU. These are collected by the state where import occurs and passed on to the EU. States are allowed to keep a proportion of the revenue to cover administration (20%[22]). The European Commission operates a system of inspectors to investigate the collection of these taxes in member states and ensure compliance with the rules. The effect of a state failing to collect these taxes is that other states will have to contribute more to the budget, so there is a potential conflict of interest on the part of the collecting authorities. Countries are liable to make good any loss of revenue due to their own administrative failure.

"Countries are liable to make good any loss of revenue due to their own administrative failure."

This could become really contentious if the EU insists on 500Km land border.
