Claims for actual expenditure on grants will be reimbursed on receipt of invoices quarterly in arrears. All invoices should quote the grant reference and a full breakdown of the costs being claimed should be provided.

Late claims have a serious effect on the charities financial management and this will be considered a serious breach of the conditions.

Important information about invoices

  • No payments shall be made until both the grant holder and the host institution have signed and returned the acceptance of the conditions for the award of a grant.
  • Payment of the grant will be made to the host institution quarterly in arrears, unless specified differently in any special conditions, or otherwise agreed. 
  • All claims must be made by setting out the costs incurred by the host institution during the preceding quarter.
  • The claim should contain sufficient detail to enable Arthritis Research UK to verify the costs incurred against the agreed budgets in the Letter of Award.
  • Arthritis Research UK may request additional information as required to verify the claim.
  • The final claim will only be accepted if an acceptable final report has been received and the invoice is submitted within 12 months of the end of the grant period
