    Financial data

No funding received from the EU institutions during the last closed financial year.

NRF basically works by coordinating the activities of its Members, the professional bodies of accountants of the five Nordic countries. NRF therefore has a very small budget of its own, which is funded by its members. Its financial reports are not published but will be sent to anybody on demand.
