Management of common costs:

Position of the Hungarian Control Body: VATI - Hungarian Non-profit Company for Regional Development and Town Planning

Common costs according to the interpretation of the previous programme periods ("horizontal costs"/"common costs") are not allowed for the Hungarian partners participating in the CENTRAL EUROPE Programme. It means that expenditures related to activities for the benefit of the whole project cannot be shared between project partners; therefore sharing of costs and payments for project activities between project partners are not allowed. Expenditures relevant for the whole project - for example project management and coordination costs, services e.g. organisation of a conference, etc. - shall be budgeted, contracted and paid by the responsible project partner for the activity.
