IP Costs Claimable under EMDG Grant
Thinking that exporting your product or service is too expensive to get started. Would it help if you knew that you could claim back up to 50% of the cost of registration and/or insurance of eligible intellectual property. There are a number of other favourable changes to this years Export Market Development Grant eligible expenditure guidelines.
For the 2008/09 year you may claim:
- payments made to third parties, e.g. patent and trademark attorneys, for the grant, registration or extension of the period of registration of intellectual property for countries other than Australia or New Zealand
- the cost of insurance premiums paid for protection against possible infringement, in countries outside Australia, of eligible intellectual property.
