Expenditure itemisation and invoices

You can download an excel template for submitting your expenditure breakdown from here.

An itemised list of expenditures for each budget heading must be provided with each form. These can be a print out or download from your project account or finance system, covering the period of the claim (preferably in GBP and in English). If you are unable to provide an itemised breakdown we will accept copies of any invoices and receipts.

For all claims concerning equipment, invoices or receipts for each purchase must be provided along with the itemisation of expenditure.

All documents supporting the claim must either be attached with the claim form or emailed to the Research Funding team when the claim is posted.
