Grant Audits

Research funders require routine financial audits to ensure project money has been spent appropriately. We work with clients from large and small organisations ensuring they meet their audit compliance requirements.

The Internal Audit team at Henderson Loggie have many years of experience in this specialist area completing grants audits for a variety of funders, including:

  • EU Horizon 2020
  • EU FP7
  • EU Interreg
    • Atlantic Area
    • North Sea Region
    • Northern Periphery and Arctic
    • Europe
    • North West Europe
  • Darwin Initiative
  • DEFRA
  • Innovate UK
  • Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation


Our extensive and detailed knowledge of audits and the issues that may arise allows us to guide clients through the process providing advice and reassurance. With a track record of re-appointment, we have become one of the leading grants auditors and welcome enquiries.

Working with us

“Having a portfolio of around 4,000 active grants at the University of Edinburgh we call on the services of our auditors on a frequent basis, especially on the EU funded projects where audits are a way of life. We have worked with MHA Henderson Loggie for over 3 years now and the service and expertise they provide us is invaluable to supporting our own service to our funders and researchers.

The friendly and practical approach of Henderson Loggie whilst guiding us on complex and specialist matters is greatly valued.”
