Lean Transform (use for Training)

Step 1 - Review Letter of Offer (Grant Agreement)

Review your Letter of Offer. This will confirm the Title of the Grant that you were approved, the Project Number of the Grant, the expenditure types and amounts that were approved and the Final Claim Date (i.e. the last date by which all expenditure must be incurred, and a valid claim submitted to Enterprise Ireland).


Step 2 - Collate Training Records

Note that you must have records of the training that took place as part of the claim available for inspection.

Criteria for Training Records [Word format]

Training provider invoices must clearly state the work undertaken, daily rate and number of days.


Step 3 - Download and Complete the Required Forms

Training-Notes [Word format] 
Training Grant Claim Form and Director Statement [Excel format]
Training Grant Progress Report [Word format]

Complete the claim form in excel and submit with all required documents.
If any of the required documents are missing, the claim will be returned.

 


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 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 IAR Completion Instructions Report 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 - Submit a Claim

Submit your claim to Enterprise Ireland by email to IndustryGrantClaims@enterprise-ireland.com

** Please note that claims are not accepted by post.

• Remember, when emailing, to include your Company Name and Project Number in the Subject Line.
Use your Client Number (CES ID) number when encrypting files. Your CES ID number can be found in “Schedule A” of your company’s Letter of Offer.

 

What happens next

  • 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 passed to the inspection team who will be in contact with you to organise a meeting with your company to validate your claim.
  • The inspector will discuss the outcome of the validation with you and will 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.
