5 Steps to Success

After you sign up and appoint us as your EMDG Consultant we will manage all aspects of your EMDG application. Answer all your questions and do nearly all the work. Because there are some things only you can do and we will show you what needs to be done. Furthermore this is done while leading you through the annual application process one step at a time.

  1. We talk with you about your business
  2. We go to work on your Application
  3. You review our work before we eLodge
  4. AUSTRADE assess your application
  5. You get paid your grant $$$

1. We talk with you about your business & what needs doing

First of all we will meet with you  face to face  via teleconference/telephone/email only to understand your situation. All things being well we will ask you to appoint us as your EMDG Consultant.
During our discussions we will investigate the nature of your export marketing & promotional activities, also verify your eligibility, estimate your grant entitlement and finally work with you to develop a lodgement strategy.

You need to provide us with all the relevant source documentation to support your application because it is these documents that will substantiate your claims

2. We go to work on your Application

Secondly we set to work collating, calculating & entering the correct amount you are entitled to claim for each and every item by referencing the rules and the source documents you have supplied.
Preparing your EMDG application in accordance with the AUSTRADE correct manner and form preparation guidelines and ready your application for lodgement via the AUSTRADE e-lodge system. Ensuring that your source documentation is correctly compiled and available for review by AUSTRADE at audit

No over-claiming or under-claiming and we get it right better than 95% of the time – 100% accuracy for CY 1920 (Source Austrade)

3. You review our work before we e-Lodge

Thirdly and when we have completed the number crunching etc, we will send you a draft copy of the application for your review.
Due to the relevant legislation we are both required sign a declaration after you have reviewed the draft and we are agreed that everything is correct. Then we can press the submit button.  Then we wait. How long we wait is directly proportional to how early we lodge. Wait times can blow out to >5 months so it is best to get in early. A July lodgement can be turned around by AUSTRADE in 4-6 weeks.

AUSTRADE assess ALL EMDG applications on a first come first served basis.

4. AUSTRADE assess your application

Fourthly we facilitate the assessment process and liaise directly with AUSTRADE because the assessment of your application may involve technical issues and as a result require a telephone call or a visit to your premises.
AUSTRADE will run preliminary checks on your application, to ensure we have provided all the required information. Your application is then assigned to a Grants Assessor, who will make contact with us in the first instance. Grants Assessors attempt to process applications in a timely fashion and we assist them by ensuring that your application is complete and accurate so that it can be processed as quickly as possible.

Our systems ensure that all the required documentation is readily available for assessment verification.

5. Your get paid your grant $$$

Finally you get paid – the EMDG Act enables a Split-payment system
Once assessment of your application has been completed, your provisional grant entitlement will be calculated. Your grant will then be paid under a split-payment system which ensures that spending under the EMDG scheme is kept within budget, and that all eligible applicants receive a grant.

Under this split-payment system, grants are paid in two rounds:
* Round 1: an initial payment of grant entitlements up to the initial payment ceiling amount – $40,000 in GY 1617
* Round 2: a second-tranche payment of grant entitlements above the initial payment ceiling amount
