Only the expenditures identified by the programme operator as expenditures linked to the implementation of the project and within the budget breakdown limits shall be considered eligible.
The incurred expenditure shall be supported by receipted invoices, or alternatively by accounting documents of equivalent probative value. The receipted invoices or accounting documents do not need to match the exact amounts forecasted eligible costs in the budget of the project contract but need to reflect the actual expenditure of the project activities carried out in the reporting/project period.
The programme operator does not require invoices or/and receipts as an annex of periodic/final project reports. These original documents must be archived and stored by all participants under the conditions stipulated in the project contract.
