Financial viability self-check

Before granting funding, we may have to check your organisation's financial capacity, if a pre-requisite for the grant you are applying for.

You can check your organisation's financial viability yourself using the Financial self-check tool.

When is your organisation's financial capacity checked?

For H2020, we check the financial viability of a project coordinator when the requested EU funding for the action is equal or superior to EUR 500,000 unless the coordinator is:

  • a public body
  • a higher or secondary education establishment
  • an international organisation or body whose participation is guaranteed by the government of an EU country or associated country, in accordance with the H2020 Annotated Model Grant Agreement.
  • a private individual in receipt of a scholarship

Financial viability self-check

You can check your organisation's financial viability yourself using the Financial self-check tool.

How is financial viability assessed?

We will assess your organisation's financial viability by checking that it:

  • has sufficient liquidity - is able to cover its short-term commitments
  • is financially autonomous
  • is solvent - capable of covering its medium and long-term commitments;
  • is profitable - generating profits, or at least with self-financing capacity. (This condition does not apply to private individuals).

Practical aspects

If your organisation's financial viability has to be assessed:

  • You will be informed in due time of the exact process and the official contact persons.
  • You will have to provide - if not already available - your financial information and relevant supporting documents covering the last closed financial year.
  • We will carry out a financial analysis on the last closed financial year.
