Enterprise Investment Programme: Manufacturing investment programme or tourism support programme revised factual findings report
Johannesburg / 30 March 2012
The Department of Trade and Industry (the dti) approved a revised factual findings report for grant claims submitted for: Enterprise Investment Programme (EIP), Manufacturing Investment Programme (MIP), or Tourism Support Programme (TSP) on 16 February 2012.
Grant claims are submitted to the dti bi-annually (for Stage 1) or annually (for Stages 2, 4 or 6) to meet the requirements as specified in the EIP: MIP or TSP programme guidelines. The revised factual findings report has been prepared in consultation with the Committee for Auditing Standards of the Independent Regulatory Board for Auditors (the IRBA) and replaces the existing factual findings report in respect of the EIP: MIP or TSP grant claim.
The revised factual findings report is effective from 1 April 2012 when reporting to the dti in respect of the EIP: MIP or TSP grant claims. Where the existing format of the report has already been submitted to the dti prior to 1 April 2012, it will be accepted by the dti and in such circumstances there is no need for the revised factual findings report to be re-submitted.
