Step 4 - What Happens Next - Claim Processing by Enterprise Ireland Grant Payments


  • The claim will be assigned to a Payment Officer, who will review the documentation to ensure that all required forms and documentation is included. If any required information is missing the Payment Officer will: 1) suspend the claim and request outstanding information or 2) if significant documentation is missing or the Final Claim Date has expired, the claim may be returned as invalid.
  • If all is in order, the claimed expenditure and associated supporting documentation will be desk inspected and passed to your Development Adviser for validation.
  • Your Development Adviser will review the claim and instruct the Payment Officer to pay or disallow the claim depending on their findings.
  • The Payment Officer completes the authorisation of the claim and submits a payment request to our Finance Department.
  • A letter will issue via email from Grant Payments - Industry with details of the approved payment and advising that payment will follow shortly to the Grantee Company’s bank account.
