There was a lot of work involved and we could never have done this without the help of Export Solutions. Their advice right from the start meant that we could plan marketing activities with the knowledge that they would be claimed back through the Export Grant. We are already working on our next application and will be using Export Solutions again.
Isabelle Moeller, Chief Executive at Biometrics Institute – November 2013
Having just submitted our 7th EMDG Grant support information to Export Solutions (albeit that our 1st was with a different consultant), I did reflect on the truly seamless and professional service that we have enjoyed from Export Solutions over these years. There has never been a question or advice request that was ever too minor and in every case, answered with prompt, relative and thoughtful responses. Often followed up with added useful information. This service has made our EMDG history a totally stress-free part of our business. Thanks and best wishes to Susan O’Connell and Gemma Hansen.
Ron Anderson, Managing Director at DAMsmart – June 2016
Winner of the ICT category, 2015 ACT Export Awards.
As an Australian exporter of software and a big world market to cover we try hard to both service our existing overseas customers and to look for new opportunities overseas wherever we can find them.
To then try to put all those expenses in a cohesive form for our EMDG claim is a major task. We rely on Export Solutions to do that for us and to advise us in all aspects that relate to our claim. They provide speedy, reliable and accurate support in all aspects of the EMDG claim and without their assistance on the claim we can’t imagine how we would even get to complete it.
Bob Green, Managing Director at Bepoz Global – May 2016
Great job again by Export Solutions. Big thanks to Gemma and everyone involved. Very much appreciated.

Katarina was fabulous to work with, you are lucky to have her!
Jane Martino, Shout For Good Pty Ltd – May 2016
Very happy!! Good work Katarina, very appreciative of the work you all do for businesses like us.
Karl Anderson, Red Coral Australia – May 2016
I would like to thank you all for tonight’s event. The feedback I received from everyone was fantastic. I know that it’s a combined effort and this is led by Tanya but I would like you to know how much all of your support of the ECA and the initiatives we are driving means. Thank you!
Lisa McAuley, CEO of the Export Council of Australia – May 2016
I would like to take the time thank you and Export Solutions on a most well planned and executed event put on by you for HOFEX Hong Kong. Your company met all of our expectations & to see you there prior to & including every day of the show was testament to the way you do business.
From the day we initially made the query with you to exhibit, there was not a question too minor that was not solved by you. We hesitated & couldn’t confirm dates as our day to day business progressed; you allowed us more time as we procrastinated, we asked you a million more questions which were all answered professionally & with ease. It is because of this type of response that we have not hesitated in aligning ourselves with you for FHA in Singapore next year. I do remember that whilst setting up for HOFEX I dealt with Nurziah who I understand was working with you right up (very close) to giving birth. Please pass on my sincere regards, she is a credit to your company, I hope mother & baby are well.
Eddie Cofie, Group Chef & Development Manager at M&J Chickens – May 2016
I would highly recommend Export Solutions.
I found them to be extremely efficient and knowledgeable. They were always available to assist .
The whole experience was positive and rewarding.
Sam Gregory, Polysoft Pty Ltd – December 2014
We realise our last application for the EMDG will be for the 2015/2016 period, and we would like to thank you for your excellent support and services during the past few years.

Navigating grant applications, especially for export, can be confusing, daunting and timing consuming! Thankfully we had the privilege of being referred to the Export Solutions team. Not only is the team a lovely group of people, they gave La Máscara Beverage Co easy to understand guidance and advise, and they offered the perfect A to Z turn key solution that we were looking for. Once we signed on, the process was made simple and seamless. Thanks you guys! Shout out to Lina and Katarina!
Ben Gillies, Director at La Máscara Beverage Co. – June 2016
We have worked with Export Solutions for 7 years now and have always been very satisfied with our outcomes every year. The advice and help from the staff never fails to be second to none. With the right information we were always able to plan our marketing strategies and we knew that our expenditure on this would be claimed back through the Export Marketing Development Grant (EMDG). It has been a big advantage for us to re-coup some of our marketing costs, which has aided us in promoting our business in the early stages.
Julie O’Leary, Australian Organic Meats
We are a family owned business and have built it from the ground up. With the time and energy we have invested in research and development, not to mention the substantial marketing expenses incurred by taking our luxury beauty products overseas, we do not think we would have continued at the rapid pace as we have without Government assistance.
There was no time to stop operations and focus on submitting an EMDG application on our own so to this note, we engaged the services of Export Solutions in 2005 and we have never looked back. They not only supported and guided us to win 8 successful EMDG applications but also connected us with specialists who assisted with our R & D Tax Concession.
The staff at Export Solutions were approacable, their service was simply excellent and nothing but professional and informative. We would highly recommend them as the ‘go to’ specialists for EMDG, the scheme was of huge benefit to our business as it would be for others.
Sheriar Irani, Managing Director at Subtle Energies Pty Ltd – May 2016
Please send our appreciation to you and your team for all your effort with regards to our Grant application. Funds have been received.
Tereasa Chatham, Accounts Manager at Aircraft Structural Contractors – June 2016
Excellent service, highly recommended.
James Larsen, K-Line Industries – May 2016
The service from Simon was excellent and a terrific value for money service. We would definitely use Export Solutions again – hopefully an opportunity arises to do so!
Barbara Macnish, CEO at Miles Morgan Australia Pty Ltd – May 2016
We found that prior and during the process of applying for the export grant that Export Solutions Pty Ltd was most helpful and resourceful. We still had to provide all the required information to Export Solutions, but having a reputable organisation assisting us with in getting our file sorted out took away the stress of it all.
Wouter Hartman, Director / Principal Geotechnical Engineer at GEOHART CONSULTANTS PTY. LTD. – December 2015
Export Solutions were amazing to work with. I manage a large act and Simon was meticulous in going through our costs and identifying grant opportunities. It made the process very easy and fast.
Anna Wallace, Manager at Melbourne Ska Orchestra – December 2015
Thank you for this good news. Please give my warmest regards to the inimitable Simon who really worked so hard on this project to get it over the line. We are very grateful to him for persisting with what was in some respects a bit of a dead dog. It would appear that it is a considerably more low risk and predictable application now.
Steve Mackay PhD, Dean of Engineering at IDC Technologies – December 2015
I first met Simon Norris at an Import/Export workshop. Simon was able to quickly explain to me the basics of an Export grant application and answer any questions I had, and I decided to go ahead with Export Solutions in applying for an Export grant. Simon’s communication was fast and clear, and he set out in simple steps the information that I needed to provide to him. He handled all aspects of the application process and was available to talk on the phone if I needed him. We were successful in our application and Simon’s fee was deducted from our grant. With no up-front fee, commission only on successful applications, and all the stress and time handling paperwork removed, using Export Solutions was a no-brainer for me as a busy business owner.
Wendy Flack, Owner at Couple It – February 2015
It has been a pleasure working with you and team for another successful edition of FHA this year!
Thanks for delivering more than 12% increase of your contribution to the exhibition and more importantly, always being around to support your exhibitors at the exhibition.
Ting Siew Mui, Project Director, Lifestyle Events Singapore Exhibition Services – May 2016
Great result… extremely professional service and I can tell you that I have recommended your service to another company that I am involved with, so you will be getting another call very soon.
Nick Chadwick, Coast to Coast Australia – October 2014
Thanks for the organising the build of our stand at CommunicAsia. It was all good and Phillip came by this morning and also made sure we had what we needed. The space works well and is in good foot traffic space.
