Article 8
Competences and aid application procedures

2. Applications and accompanying files of support-ing documents shall be submitted in three copies, or four in the case of submission s to ELKE.
The financial preliminary study, accompanying the application seeking eligibility for grant and/or interest subsidy and/or leasing subsidy, in case of investments and/or equipment leasing programs or business plans in excess of eighty million (80,000,000) drachmas, shall be signed by an economist member of the Hel-lenic Economic Chamber (O.E.E.) or an equivalent organisation of any European Union member-state. Applications failing to meet this condition shall be filed and not reviewed.
3. Technical-financial data and supporting docu-ments accompanying the application are specified by virtue of decision of the Minister of National Economy.
Technical-financial data and supporting documents, accompanying the application seeking eligibility of business plans under sub-instance (xv) of instance (a), sub-instance (v) of instance (e) and sub-instance (xii) of instance (g) of para. 1, article 3, are specified by virtue of joint decision of the Ministers of National Economy and Development.
Technical-financial data and supporting documents, accompanying the application seeking eligibility of in-vestments under sub-instances (xvii), (xviii), (xix), (xx) and (xxi) of instance (a) as well as of investments un-der instance (f) of para. 1, article 3, are specified by virtue of decision of the Minister of Development.
Supporting documents and data that are explicitly required to be submitted with the application accord-ing to the provisions of these presents, do not have to be included in the decisions above.
4. Upon submission of the application to the compe-tent authority, there should also be produced a receipt of payment, the amount of which shall be set by joint decision of the Ministers of National Economy, Devel-opment and Finance. To set such amount, account shall be taken of the total cost pertaining to the in-vestment and/or equipment leasing program or busi-ness plan submitted for approval.
The above amount shall be paid, accordingly:
(a) To EOMMEX, in case of applications submitted thereto; amounts receivable by the organisation shall constitute income to cover part of operating expenses ensuing from the application of incentives herein.
(b) To the Public Revenue Department, in case of other applications; amounts receivable shall constitute State revenues.
5. Applications not accompanied by all required sup-porting documents and data shall not be subject to the provisions of these presents nor reviewed, shall be filed in the records of the competent department and the amount paid under para. 4 above shall not be re-funded. The same stands for applications which in-clude the aforementioned required supporting docu-ments, but upon review of the file major deficiencies have been identified in the financial and technical study, thus preventing evaluation of the submitted in-vestment and/or equipment leasing program or busi-ness plan. After submission of the application, the competent reviewing services or bodies may, if re-quired, send to the organisation, applying for the in-vestment and/or program or business plan, or the at-torney thereof, a document asking for additional data or information as well as further clarifications, to facili-tate the evaluation process of the application.
Such document may set time limits of fifteen (15) days from the date stated on the delivery receipt, within which the organisation shall have to respond.
