New approach for simplified costs:
New approach for auditing this new type of expenditure and impact on work of audit authorities (as well as for MA’s, FLC and beneficiaries).
What should AA know:
Modification: threshold lifted from € 200.000 to € 1 Mio. total project costs – duty to observe and deduct (re-pay) revenues
Misunderstanding: projects with total costs below the threshold do not have to record, register and deduct revenues! ATTENTION
AA: be aware that revenues have to be taken into consideration – no matter of the size of the project. Ensure that national eligibility rules are clear in this aspect. During audits – audit revenues as well!
