New Grants

The EMDG milestone submission deadline for Round 1 and Round 2 grantees is on 31st October 2023. Milestone reporting is part of the grant agreement before any payments will be made to you by Austrade for the financial year regardless of what you have spent.

If you already received a early grant payment for expenditures incurred in FY 2022-23 then you are still required to submit your milestone report. Austrade uses your milestone report to assess your progress against your planned activities and to establish if you have met the goals identified in your plan to market.

Milestone Online Reporting

You need to complete your online report with:

  • details of your overseas marketing expenses for FY 2022-23
  • your export earnings
  • describe your progress towards your export goals outlined in your plan to market

Applicants with existing EMDG grant agreements but no expenditure for FY 2022-23 must still submit a $0 milestone report.

Austrade will not be allowing extensions to the EMDG milestone deadline, so best to submit early to avoid issues that might arise from such. EMDG grant payments will follow shortly after milestone submission.

Record Keeping

You need to document evidence for eligible expenses you incur for your grant agreement. Your grant agreement will specify what evidence you will need to provide with your milestone report. Austrade may ask you for further evidence such as:

  • supporting documents
  • invoices and payment details for expenses
  • invoices for export earnings

Austrade may contact your overseas representative (in person or by phone) to confirm details of any activities they have conducted on your behalf. Your may refer to their milestone reports guide for more information. You must submit a milestone report for the financial year regardless of the amount you have spent. Submit the report through the EMDG online portal or contact your EMDG Consultant.
