What Happens Next

  • Your claim will be assigned to a Grant 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 your claim may be returned as invalid.
  • If all is in order, the claimed expenditure and associated proof of payment will be desk inspected and passed to the relevant Enterprise Ireland Programme Manager for validation.
  • The Programme Manager will review the claim and instruct the payment officer to 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.
  • A payment report will issue via email from Grant Payments with details of the approved payment and advising that payment will follow shortly by Electronic Fund Transfer (EFT) to the Grantee Company's bank account.
