In principle, partners should report on the total expenditure.
At final report stage, in practice, partners shall update the section 13 of the Single Form with all actual costs. In order to validate the section please be sure that the “total costs” in section 13.1 and the “total funding” in section 13.3 are the same amounts. In case of overspending, the exceeding amount shall be charged to the Applicant or to the other donor.

The article continues: ‘for one or more beneficiaries, if [...].’ ‘If payments are suspended for one or more beneficiaries, the granting authority will make partial payment(s) for the part(s) not suspended [...].

If the payment suspension concerns the coordinator, the share of the payment for the coordinator would be suspended. Final payment would be made after the end of the period of suspension. As an alternative, the consortium could appoint another beneficiary as coordinator in order to receive the payment.
The same rule of 70% still applies, there are no fixed dates for the disbursement of further pre-financing. See article 22.3.1 MGA on additional prefinancings.
