Step 4 - Attach Independent Accountants Report if required

All claims, in respect of grants approved in excess of €400,000, must be certified by an Independent Accountant.  

Enterprise Ireland 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 (signed and dated) by an independent accountant on their headed paper.  

Please download and send the M45 Independent Accountants Report to your independent accountant for completion. 

Note* their report should certify the details (date of, project number(s) and expenditure amount) as outlined on the Directors Statement relating to claim.
