Grant Audit Services

If you have applied for funding through a grant such as Innovate UK it is possible that you will need a grant audit service for the claims you submit.

Grant audit requirements are set by the relevant grant funding body and stated in the award letter and associated documentation. The purpose of the grant audit is to provide assurance to the funding body that the funds have been used in accordance with the terms of the grant.
