FAQ - Financial Reports

FAQ: How does a third party report costs in my H2020 project? Beneficiaries and their linked third parties (listed in Article 14 of the Grant Agreement) must each complete their own financial statement as part of the periodic report. Information on reporting costs from other third parties, not listed in article 14, must be integrated in the financial statement of the beneficiary, and pop-up windows will open for providing additional explanations for the use of resour

FAQ: Who can edit the financial forms and the explanation on the use of resources in the periodic reporting? (Primary) Coordinator Contacts, Participant Contacts, Task Managers, Project Financial Signatories and Project Legal Signatories can edit all parts of their financial statements including the explanation on the use of resources.

FAQ: Forms C (electronic signature) Only one electronic signature per form C is possible in the system. The person executing this electronic signature must have collected the prior authorisations required by the internal rules of your organisation. The process for collecting and documenting these authorisations must be organised internally in your institution (e.g. via an internal paper process).

FAQ: Submission of Form C The coordinator reviews all parts of the periodic report before submitting it to the Commission. If needed, the coordinator can send back a financial statement to a partner for further changes. In exceptional cases, the coordinator may submit the periodic report with a lacking financial statements from a partner (e.g. if a beneficiary cannot submit its individual financial statement on time). If this happens, the coordinator will be asked to confirm that (s)he is aware of this and that therefore the related costs of this partner will not be considered for the current interim payment. That beneficiary's costs will be considered 'zero' for the current reporting period, though they can declare their costs in the next financial report.

FAQ: Can the electronic financial statement forms ("forms C") be printed? Yes. In addition, users are able to download the forms with the e-receipt in pdf format.

FAQ: partners' financial forms and the explanation on the use of resources overviews For H2020, the summary of the use of resources is only available after the submission of the periodic report, as an attachment created by the IT system. The screen versions of both the summary of use of resources per beneficiary and the complete summary of use of resources for all beneficiaries will be soon available in H2020 as it is in FP7. Meantime this overview is available in Authore.

FAQ: certificate on the financial statement (CFS) for a Horizon 2020 grant

An audit certificate is required at the end of the project if the cumulative requested EU contribution is EUR 325 000 or more. It is based on reimbursement of actual costs and unit costs. It excludes indirect costs and other costs based on lump sums or unit costs other than those for personnel costs and don’t need to be covered by the certificate like the amount paid as pre-financing.

Linked third parties must submit a certificate if they themselves (i.e. without taking into account costs claimed by the beneficiary in question) reach the EUR 325 000 threshold.

Within 60 days of the end of the last reporting period, coordinators must submit a final report including a CFS for each beneficiary and each linked third party that requested the contribution indicated above.

If a certificate is required, it must cover all costs declared as actual costs or average personnel costs. Incomplete certificates will be returned for correction.
