54Common problems encountered when reporting Content:Periodic Report and Final Report are different – the two reports contain different information thus the need for a Periodic Report for the last period.Publishable Summary is public – its content is published on Cordis, thus the need to making sure that it doesn’t contain confidential information.The possible need of having an amendment – for certain issues preventing the reporting you may opt for an amendment.
55Final Report is complementary to Periodic Reports The Final and Periodic Reports have different contents.The Periodic Report for the last period still needs to be submitted.Periodic ReportDeclaration by the scientific representative of the project coordinatorPublishable summarySummary description of project context and objectivesDescription of work performed and main resultsExpected final results and potential impactsProject public website address2.

60AmendmentsFor issues blocking the reporting process, you may apply for an amendment:The project accumulates delays and there is a need for an extension of duration.The Coordinator person is changed.The Reporting Periods are changed.The Annex I is changed.For more information consult the CSJU GAPs amendments guide, available here:However…It is subject to Topic Manager and Project Officer approval.An amendment incurs bureaucracy and is time consuming.It has to be requested at the latest two months prior the end date.

68Documents to be submitted in original Reporting periodsDocuments to be submitted in original(= signed paper version)Original* signed Form C All costs should be uploaded in Force.After electronic submission, the original signed document must follow by post immediately (except as below)Original* CFS when neededCompulsory when the reimbursement of costs is equal or superior to EUR 200,000 when cumulated with all previous payments for which a certificate on the financial statements has not been submitted and in any case at the end of the Project.* except if the Grant has been amended for the “Electronic submission only” or if it has been signed after the 01/01/2013.Explanation on the use of resources (Electronic)A short description of the tasks carried out with the breakdown is compulsory. Those explanations have to be reported into Force while preparing the form C. The WP references should be reported as well.
69How to revise a Form C on Force Please click on the organization name to edit the Form C that must be revised (no need to add an adjustment Form C)
70Explanation of the Use of the Resources Please provide an explanation of personnel costs, subcontracting and any major costs incurred by each beneficiary, such as the purchase of important equipment, travel costs, large consumable items, etc., linking them to work packages.There is no standard definition of "major cost items". Beneficiaries may specify these, according to the relative importance of the item compared to the total budget of the beneficiary, or as regards the individual value of the item.These can be listed in the following table (one table by participant):
71Explanation of the Use of the Resources Amount in € with 2 decimals Table 3.1 Personnel, subcontracting and other major cost items for Beneficiary 1 for the periodWork PackageItem descriptionAmount in € with 2 decimalsExplanationsEx: 2,5, 8, 11, 17Personnel direct costs€Salaries of 2 postdoctoral students and one lab technician for 18 months each5Subcontracting€Maintenance of the web site and printing of brochure8, 17Major cost item 'X'€NMR spectrometer11Major cost item 'Y'€Expensive chemicals xyz for experiment abcRemaining direct costs€Indirect costsTOTAL COSTS€
72Entering the explanations on the use of resources You must fill in at least one major “Cost” itemThe “Total” cost is automatically calculated on the basis of the individual cost items.
73Entering the explanations on the use of resources Actual indirect costs are directly editable (without details).
74Payment types pre-financing in accordance with Article 6 (of GA) interim payments of the JU financial contribution corresponding to the amount accepted for each reporting periodfinal payment of the JU financial contribution corresponding to the amount accepted for the last reporting period plus any adjustment neededThe total amount of the pre-financing and interim payments for each project shall not exceed 80% of the maximum JU financial contribution set out in Article 5 (of GA)
75Identification of direct costs Direct costs are the eligible costs which can be attributed directly to the project and are identified by the beneficiary as such, in accordance with its accounting principles and its usual internal rules.With regard to personnel costs only the costs of the actual hours worked by the persons directly carrying out work under the project may be charged :either the costs of the actual hours OR the average personnel costs, if this is its usual cost accounting practice and under certain conditions.For SME owners and other natural persons who do not receive a salary: they must charge as personnel costs a flat rate based on the allowances used in the People Specific Programme ( see Annex II of the Grant Agreement for Partners, art. II.14. Eligible costs of the project )
76Special case of SME owners SME owners and other natural persons who do not receive a salary shall charge as personnel costs a flat rate.Useful calculator: « SME owners and natural persons without a salary: hourly rate calculation tool »Available at :(under << Financial issues>> SME owners and natural persons without a salary: hourly rate calculation tool )
77Identification of indirect costs Indirect costs are all those eligible costs which cannot be identified by the beneficiary as being directly attributed to the project, but which can be identified and justified by its accounting system, as being incurred in direct relationship with the eligible direct costs attributed to the project.Identification of the indirect costs, according to the validated methodology :The actual indirect costs method – The beneficiary must have an analytical accounting system ORSimplified method ORThe 20 % flat rate option of its total direct eligible costs, excluding its direct eligible costs for subcontracting and the costs of resources made available by third parties which are not used on the premises of the beneficiary.
78Certificate of financial statements (CFS) (Annex VI – Form D of the Gaps) The Certificate of Financial Statements has to be transmitted to the JU together with the Financial Statements (Forms C). The Certificate of the Financial Statements is composed of 2 separate documents:The terms of reference (TORs) duly signed by the beneficiary and the auditor, representing in fact the engagement letter between the beneficiary and the auditor. The engagement letter must be dated and signed by both parties.The independent Report of Factual Findings to be issued on the auditor's letterhead and dated, stamped and signed by the auditor .The report comprises of the general part (comparable with executive summary) and of a detailed description in table format describing the procedures performed by the auditor and the findings resulting there from. This table should be paraphed by the auditor.A copy of all Form Cs , as submitted to the JU,should be attached to the CFS and should be stamped by the auditor !!!
79Certificate of financial statements (CFS) Note to beneficiaries and CFS auditors The Procedures stated in the table of the CFS Report of factual findings (left hand column) should not be altered. The wording should be maintained literally.However the auditors may add further procedures, which they consider necessaryThe same applies in principle for the Standard factual findings and basis for exception reporting (right hand column of the table). However, out of the options provided in the model text the relevant ones have to be chosen and the text has to be used only where it is applicable.The model text of the findings and exceptions must NOT be simply COPIED/PASTED !!!In Procedures and Findings/Exceptions, additional informationis always welcome...
80Common Mistakes on Certificates of Financial Statements Term of Reference: not signed by both parties (beneficiary and auditor)In addition, when the procedures performed by the auditors are not correctly reported and in particular:Procedure 1 related to the “personnel cost” : the auditor reports the hours worked for the project while he has to report the average number of hours per year (regardless of the project)Procedures 5 & 6 : subcontract. The auditor declared having performed the check while no sub-contract was reported.Procedure 10 : check on indirect costs must be performed if the “real method” has been used. The common mistake is the missing information about the type of ratio used for the calculation of such costs.Procedure 10 & 11 : indirect costs – when making use of a “simplified method” (procedure 11) the auditor should also confirm that the non eligible costs of procedure 10 have been excluded.Procedure 12 : exchange rate. One of the two options has to be reported (not both).
81Common Mistakes on Certificates of Financial Statements CFS !Make sure to use the latest version of Annex VI – Form D available on the CSJU website:81
82Good / bad practices encountered during the validation of cost claims Report of Factual Findings Good practice:In the section « Objective », amongst other information, the total declared costs to be certified are mentioned by the auditors together with the indication of the period(s) covered (current period and previous, if applicable,and any adjustmemts of previous period).NB! Any statement from the auditors should always be based on full cost.Cost claims audited are attached to the report and stamped/paraphed by the auditors.82
83Good / bad practices encountered during the validation of cost claims Sub-contracting Bad practices:procedures confirm the compliance with eligibility criteria for sub-contracting, although no such expenses have been charged to the audited project costs as per cost claim.Inconsistent information provided in the procedures compared to exceptions noted on best value for money and factual findings in the report.Unclear information provided in the report on work performed.
84Good / bad practices encountered during the validation of cost claims Sub-contracting Good practice:Procedure 6 – Tendering ProcedureThe objective of this procedure is to verify that the principles of best value for money, transparency and equal treatment is respected.It often happens that the beneficiary is unable to provide evidence of fair tendering.However, based on his findings the auditor should at least be able to confirm the principle of best value for money.Exception:When tasks performed by the subcontractor are highly specialised in nature and there are relatively limited sources available for such services.However, prior approval of the project officer is requested and evidence should be provided if needed.
85Good / bad practices encountered during the validation of cost claims Sub-contracting Good practice:Procedure 6 – Framework contractSubcontracts concluded between a beneficiary and a subcontractor on the basis of framework contracts entered into force before the beginning of the project in accordance with the beneficiary’s usual management may be accepted.
86Standard productive hours Problems encountered during the validation of cost claims – personnel costsStandard productive hours Problem area:The standard productive hours and/ or actual productive hours are sometimes comparatively low.No information is provided in those cases, why and whether the calculation of the individual actual cost rates is still reasonable.No evidence is provided in the certificate to the JU, that the auditor questioned the proper calculation of the number of the productive hours used for determining the actual personal rates.Part-time work should be mentioned by the auditor.86
87Problems encountered during the validation of cost claims - Personal costs Mixing up procedures for actual personnel costs and average personnel costs Problem area:Different procedures have to be applied depending on the method used for determining the personnel costs of the project. The auditor should be very careful in the terms used….The usage of terms such as “average productive hours” for allocating actual personnel costs to the project is often mixed up with the term “average personnel costs”. They are not equal!! The procedures to be applied are DIFFERENT….Bad practice: Application of elements of both procedures… the auditor should only use the procedures applicable for the method used!! No mixing!! It doesn’t make sense…87
88Actual personal cost -procedures to be performed by the auditor Procedure n° 1 in fullNB. The average number of productive hours for the employees selected is equal to “Productive hours” which represent the (average) number of hours made available by the employee in a year (regardless of the work performed for the project) after the deduction of holiday, sick leave and other entitlements
89Average personal cost -procedures to be performed by the auditor The auditor should perform the procedure 1 and 4 (A, B or C) :Procedure n°1 should be performed in full if 4B is applicable:The auditor should base his work on the results of procedure 1 concerning calculation of standard productive hours.Procedure n°4 B (the common one)The auditor is requested to review the beneficiary's average personnel costingmethodology in the light of the 4 criteria set forth in the Commission decisionC(2011)714 on the simplification introducing the new acceptability criteria for averagepersonnel costs and based upon the information related to procedure n°1Procedure n° 4A is for those having a Certificate of Methodology ex-ante validated by the EC. In that case for the procedure n° 1, the auditor is requested to check only the part related to productive hours.Procedure n°4 C is applicable only for SME owners and natural persons not receiving a salary
90Problems encountered during the validation of cost claims- indirect costs Good practice:Depending on the Indirect Cost Model (ICM) used by the beneficiary, the auditor should complete the following procedures:Actual Indirect Costs: procedure n°10Simplified method: procedure n°10 (part) and 11Flat rate: Part of the 10 Bad practice:In the basis for exception reporting relating to actual indirect cost, the cost driver is not presented.90
91Applicable for Simplified method Procedure 10 & 11Applicable for Simplified methodIndirect costs Good practice:The auditor should obtain and review a detailed breakdown of Indirect costs (reconciled to the accounting records) and confirm that the costs indicated in the procedure 10 are not present.In the standard factual findings the following sentence should be used by the auditor:For each element of the breakdown, the auditor obtained the Beneficiary’s confirmation that it contained none of the ineligible costs specified (typical examples are leasing costs, loan charges, provisions for doubtful debt (but not normal accruals), local business and property taxes, customs duties, exchange losses from billing in a foreign currency).Additional comments are welcome.91
92General issues – good/ bad practices audit fees Problem area:Fees are not included in the eligible reported costs as management costs under subcontractingGood practice:Audit fees should be declared as subcontracting costs in Management activity.
93Average personnel costs Problems encountered during the validation of cost claims - Average personnel costsAverage personnel costsNew procedures have been developed by the Commission for the CFS on APC with and without COMAV. The new provisions may be applied retrospectively for CSJU Gaps. However, the same method has to be used for all financial statements submitted from the beginning of the Gap. Problem area:APC without COMAV:The auditors need to check the four basic criteria for the acceptability of average personnel costs without COMAV:The average personnel cost methodology shall be the one declared by the beneficiary as its usual cost accounting practice; as such it shall be consistently applied to all the participations of the beneficiary in the Framework Programme.The methodology shall be based on the actual personnel costs of the beneficiary as registered in its statutory accounts, without estimated or budgeted elements;93
94Single Submission/rejection In the coming weeks, the single submission will be implemented. This means that the technical AND the financial reports should be submitted electronically in the same time.In case one or both reports have an issue, both will be rejected for revision.A single rejection letter listing the correction/clarification to be provided will be sent automatically via .Do not delay the payment : Please read carefully the reason and provide a full set of correction/clarification as requested.
