Financial report (‘Actuals’ budget)

You must provide a financial report to show the actual income and expenditure of your project. Using the same format that approval of your grant was based on, the financial report should show any variance in actual expenditure from your approved budget. The budget must show the actual expenditure of the entire project and not just the portion funded by Creative New Zealand.
