General

Procedure of a grant

On the basis of the graphic, you can see an example of the course of a project within the framework of a grant.

For the use of state subsidies, you must meet two points in particular: funding requirements and deadlines.

Eligibility requirements

Each funding pot is aimed at specific types of companies and projects. In most cases, minimum and maximum requirements are set for company size, turnover, industry and company headquarters.

Some pots only promote consultations, others the concrete implementation, some both. In addition, there are separate funds for young companies or those in difficulty.

Due to the extensive preliminary examination, every requested funding has been approved so far.

Which subsidies are suitable for you, we clarify with you free of charge and without obligation in advance in cooperation with a specialized agency for funding advice and processing.

Respites

Funding pots are usually limited in the total volume and in the period. Here it is important to start the application for funding as early as possible.

In addition, the approval of the funding takes several weeks and months, depending on the funding pot and the workload of the respective offices. As a rule, the project to be funded may not start before the funding has been approved or promised.

We therefore often tackle urgent, short-term projects with our customers outside of any subsidies.

Less time-critical projects , on the other hand, are ideal funding projects if a start may be delayed by the waiting time for funding approval.

As soon as the funding has been approved, the funded project must be fully executed, settled and submitted to the funding office as successfully completed within a certain period of time. In most cases, the gross deadline is 6-12 months from the release of the funding.

Payment

The payment of the project sum is usually possible in a maximum of 1-2 tranches, depending on the project size in advance or after completion of the project. For some funding pots you only pay your own contribution, for some you will receive the funding amount refunded by the funding office after completion of the project.

What if the funding is not released

Contracts in connection with a subsidy will only become binding in connection with a promise of funding. If, contrary to expectations, the funding office does not release a grant, for example because the funding pots should be empty by now, the planned order is automatically considered cancelled and we will discuss possible alternatives with you.

You therefore do not enter into any payment obligation if a promise of funding by the funding office should be rejected.
