Step 3 - Independent Accountants Report
Claims do not need to be certified by an Independent Accountant where:
- your company is a Small or Medium Enterprise (SME1) and not part of a group and
- the full grant package approved in your letter of offer is €250,000 or less.
Enterprise Ireland still reserves the right to request a claim to be certified by an Independent Accountant where deemed necessary and may withhold payment of the claim until such request has been complied with.
If your claim requires certification, it must be certified by an Independent Accountant on their headed paper. Click to access the template.

Step 5 - What happens next
Your claim will be assigned to a Grant Payment Officer who will review the details and seek clarification from you if necessary.
If all is in order the claim will be passed to the inspection team who will be in contact with you to organise a visit to your company to validate your claim.
The inspector will discuss the outcome of the validation with you and will instruct the payment officer to defer, disallow or pay the claim depending on their findings.
The payment officer completes the authorisation of your claim and submits a payment request to our Finance Department. You can opt to have your grant paid directly into your bank account or by cheque.
A letter will issue from Grant Payments with details of the approved payment and advising that payment will follow shortly.
