More grants for Australian exporters

There have been changes to the Emdg act.... All good says Ivan Kaye at Business Strategies International.

The amendments have delivered on the Coalition's pre-election commitment to progressively restore funding to EMDG starting with an initial $50 million boost over four years.

These changes are:

  • An increase in the number of grants able to be received by an applicant from seven to  eight
  • A reduction in the minimum expenses threshold required to be incurred by an applicant  from $20,000 to $15,000 - ( great for new exporters )
  • Enabling a grant to be paid more quickly where a grant is determined before 1 July following the balance distribution date. - (Money quicker for you)
  • If you lodge on your own - deadline is 1 dec 2014 
  • If you lodge through an acreditted Emdg consultant (us) deadline is 3 march 2015
BSI have been EMDG and grant specialists for 27 years accessing hundreds of millions of dollars in grants for small business.
