Any contributions in kind, which must be listed separately at Table 4 of the Budget, do not represent actual expenditure and are not eligible costs. The contributions in kind may not be treated as co-financing by the Beneficiary or its partners. However, the cost of staff assigned to the Action is not a contribution in kind and may be considered as co-financing in the Budget of the Action when paid by the Beneficiary or its partners. Notwithstanding to the above, if the Description of the Action foresees the contributions in kind, such contributions have to be provided.
