EMDG consultants are independent businesses that help exporters prepare and lodge EMDG grant applications. Each year Austrade approves some of these Consultants to be able to lodge claims for an extended period, under the voluntary consultant Quality Incentive Program.
The lists below will be updated in September 2015, and will show consultants who will be able to lodge claims from 1 July 2015 until mid-night Austalian Eastern Daylight Time (AEDT) 29 February 2016.
The period for applicants who prepare and lodge their own claims for the 2014-15 grant year, and EMDG Consultants not approved to lodge late are now closed.
Applications for self-prepared and EMDG Consultants not approved for extended lodgement for the 2015-16 grant year open on 1 July 2016 and close mid-night (Australian Eastern Daylight Time) 30 November 2016.
