Is your organisation involved in R&D? Did you know that the Innovate UK Grant can offer 70-100% funding for the costs of an R&D project?

Who needs a Grant Audit?

If your business or organisation is applying for, or has been granted UK and EU government grants, you may be required to submit an audit report certified by an independent external auditor at the end of the claim or at points during the lifetime of the project. This is often a requirement to ensure compliance and to meet the terms and conditions required by the funding body.

The most common grants we are asked to audit include:

  • UK Innovate grants
  • Horizon 2020
  • FP7

There are a host of others which require an independent audit, which we can also undertake for you.
