Export Marketing Development Grants (EMDG) are now open for applications from 1st July 2019.
How much can I get?
EMDG is a 50% rebate, over the first $5k of overseas marketing expenses, including travel to trade-shows, overseas reps and IP registration. Grant payments for this round will be in 2 tranches.
- Tranche 1 is A$40,000 (this was confirmed on 25/6/2019)
- Tranche 2 will be the remainder of the grant up to the value of $150k times a payout factor (TBD in June 2020).
Recipients who have an EMDG entitlement up to and including $40,000 will be paid in full. Those with entitlements above this amount will receive a second tranche EMDG payment at the end of June 2020, the size of which will be determined at that time.
The second tranche EMDG payout factor in 2019-20 is expected to significantly increase, following the Government’s commitment of an additional A$60 million in the 2019–20 budget. Second tranche payout factor for 2018–19 (last year’s EMDG) was 24.59 cents in the dollar, following the highest number of applications in nearly a decade.
Who can apply for EMDG:
You must be an Australian business that has a product, service or intellectual property ready for sale to overseas customers. You will need to have good evidence to support your expenses and show that you have a “significant net benefit” to Australia. You will need to have less than $50m turn over and be the principal in export (not an agent).
