EMDG first tranche update

Austrade have announced that the Initial Payment Ceiling Amount (IPCA), or first tranche payment for the 2020-21 grant year for the Export Market Development Grants scheme will be $30,000.

The first tranche is the maximum amount paid as a first instalment to reimburse exporters who have made eligible marketing expense applications through the scheme.

Recipients for the 2020-21 grant year who have an entitlement up to and including $30,000 will be paid in full.

Subject to available funding, those with entitlements above this amount will receive a second tranche payment at the end of June 2022, the size of which will be determined at that time.


Interested in lodging an EMDG application this year?

If your business has spent money on overseas marketing, this is your last chance to be reimbursed under the current EMDG program before changes take place from 1 July 2021.

If it's your first EMDG application, you can claim expenses back to 1 July 2019.

Applications open on 1 July 2021. Now is the time to determine your eligibility and establish what documents are required to apply.
