Reports & payment requests

The coordinator must submit to the Commission technical and financial reports, including requests for payment.

To learn more about reports & payment requests, please read Article 20 of the H2020 Annotated Model Grant Agreement. A small summary from it:

The coordinator must submit both:

  • periodic report after the end of each reporting period (including the last one) and
  • final report at the end of the action

Each report should be seen as a single package, composed of several parts, i.e.:

  • a (periodic or final) technical report
    The periodic technical report includes an explanation of work carried out, an overview of progress, a publishable summary and a questionnaire.
    The final technical report is a publishable summary of the entire action (describing the overview of the results and their exploitation and dissemination, the conclusions on the action and its socio-economic impact).
  • a (periodic or final) financial report
    The periodic financial report includes the individual financial statements, an explanation of the use of resources and the periodic summary financial statement).
    The periodic financial report includes the individual financial statements, an explanation of the use of resources and the periodic summary financial statement).
    The final financial report basically consists of the final summary financial statement that is automatically created by the system. In some cases (and for some beneficiaries/linked third parties) it must be accompanied by a certificate on the financial statements (one certificate per beneficiary/linked third party).
    The financial reports also contain the requests for payment (necessary for any payment other than the pre-financing payment).
  • The periodic report for the last reporting period covers only the last period, while the final report must give an overview of the action's results over its entire duration.
