What is the timeframe for eligibility of expenditure?Answer:
Expenditure is eligible in following periods:
- Costs for the implementation of an approved project are eligible from its start date until its end date as set in the subsidy contract. At the earliest, costs are eligible as from the day after the submission of the full application form, provided that this day is the official start date of the project as indicated in the application form. On this basis, partners may decide at their own risk to start the implementation of the project even before the monitoring committee decision for funding.
- Costs for project closure (e.g. preparation and submission of the last progress report, final report and costs for control of expenditure) are eligible, and must be paid until the deadline for submission of the final report as set in the subsidy contract (i.e. three months after project end).
