Subsidies of DKK 100,000 or less
If you have received a project subsidy of DKK 100,000 or less, you must declare that the subsidy has been used entirely for the purpose.
You must complete the declaration, sign it and send it to the contact for the area for which you have received the subsidy. If you have applied through the grant portal, you must fill in the declaration in the portal.
Please note that the Danish Agency for Culture and Palaces makes random checks among some of the subsidy recipients. We will contact you if you are selected for a random check.
Please provide the following information in the declaration:
- Reference number (stated in the grant notification letter)
- Project title
- Whether you have used all of the subsidy
Have you used all of the subsidy?
If you have been paid all of your subsidy, but have not used all of it, you will be asked to pay back the amount in excess.
Please note, however, that the Danish Agency for Culture and Palaces does not demand to have amounts of DKK 1,500 or less refunded. This procedure has been established so that the administrative costs of refunding do not exceed the amount that is paid back.
The Danish Agency for Culture and Palaces makes random checks among some of the subsidies and requests accounts. If your case is selected for a random check, you will be notified of this within three weeks after we have received your declaration. We will provide guidance on what such accounts should look like, if relevant.
Keep your receipts
We do not need attachments, receipts, etc. together with the accounts. However, the Danish Agency for Culture and Palaces may request documentation about the project's financing within five years from the end of the year in which the project was completed. Therefore, you must save the accounting documentation; that is, attachments and receipts from the period of time in question.
