Step 3 - Independent Accountants Report


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

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 (signed and dated) by an Independent Accountant on their headed paper.

Please download and send the Independent Accountants Report (IAR) Completion Instructions to your Independent Accountant for completion. Note that their report should certify the Details (Date of, project number(s) and expenditure amount) as outlined on the Directors Statement relating to claim.

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.  Due to Covid-19 Travel Restrictions, it is not possible currently to carry out an on-site inspection and alternative arrangements will be implemented by the Grant Inspection Team.
  • 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.
  • Details of the approved payment will issue from Grant Payments.
