Together with the Activity Report, an
audited Payment Claim must be submitted every six months to request an
instalment of ERDF funding. The Payment Claim relates closely to the Activity
Report and shows the expenditure incurred (expenditure actually paid by the Lead
Partner supported by receipts and invoices or accounting documents of an
equivalent probative value) during the period of reporting.
A manual to assist project partners in the completion of the
payment claim and activity report is available on the menu bar on the right
handside (see Useful Tips & Lead
Partners section). Payment Claims will be assessed by a designated
member of staff within the Finance Unit.
Projects that do not meet their spending targets are in danger
losing ERDF funding. If any partner finds itself in a situation where
significant deviations from the approved Annual Budget Breakdown are expected,
the Lead Partner must inform the Secretariat of the expected variation and their
claim and activity report manual
