The European Union is globally the biggest donor for development aid. In order to cooperate with the EU successfully and to benefit from the funds that are available, beneficiaries have to comply with a multitude of complicated accounting regulations for the projects financed by the EU. Failure to comply with these regulations can result in the withdrawal of funding.
Experts who deal with EU-funded projects have to know among others:
Which costs are eligible
How to handle the accounting of staff costs
How to solve VAT issues
Which public procurement rules apply to their project
At this practical seminar participants will learn how to conduct the financial accounting and the project management of EU-funded project correctly. Experienced financial managers from the EU and the pre-accession countries lead practical workshops on sound accounting for beneficiaries of EU external cooperation funds.
With experts from:
EU Funds Department, Ministry of Culture, Montenegro
Undersecretariat of Treasury, Audit Authority, Turkey
IBGE – Environmental Agency of Brussels Capital Region, Belgium
