Project Registration in CDAD
The Central Donor Assistance Database enables registration of projects which are financed with irreversible funds by foreign donors. For this type of projects there is a procedure for exemption from payment of customs and other duties, excise tax and value added tax (VAT).

The procedure is pursued by the entities responsible for implementation of projects financed with irreversible funds by foreign donors, for which the Government of the Republic of Macedonia and the foreign donors have singed agreements containing a clause that the donations can not be used for payment of public fees in the Republic of Macedonia.

In order to start the procedure for exemption from payment of customs, value added tax and other charges for the official needs of the project (find details in the Guidelines issued by the Ministry of Finance), the project has to be registered in the Secretariat for European Affairs – Government of the Republic of Macedonia.

Procedure for project registration in the Secretariat for European Affairs – Sector for coordination of EU funds and other foreign assistance and in the Central Donor Assistance Database (CDAD)
