H2020 finances are well documented, but especially for newcomers or busy companies a book with seven seals. We at accelopment are often asked: Where can I find H2020 financial rules relevant to my project? Which project related costs are eligible for funding and which ones are not? Where, when and how do I need to submit the financial report to the European Commission (EC)? How do I prepare for a financial audit?

With our gfs service, we help you answer these and many more questions – we are happy to support your SME in financial matters over the course of your SME Instrument Phase 2 project.

Our grant finance support (gfs) services

We offer several modules or continuous support to optimally suit your needs.


Our approach

Our experts can support you along the whole way – from the project start to finish.

  • To get your project on the “right financial track”, we offer a “STARTER module” that requires very little of your time and helps you avoid “surprises” later.
  • To facilitate the financial report at the end of each reporting period (RP), we provide effective guidance in the “REPORTING module” for your regular financial reports.
  • To complete the project financial process at the end of the project, we suggest using our “AUDIT module” for your Certificate on Financial Statements (CFS).

Your benefits

  • Understand the H2020 financial rules
  • Increase efficiency in your project’s financial management
  • Reduce duplication of work through professional advice
  • Obtain quicker approval of your cost claims by the EC and thus receive payments sooner
  • Acquire knowledge from an experienced EU project partner
