Austrade has approved some of these consultants to be able to lodge claims on behalf of exporters from 1 July 2014 until mid-night (Australian Eastern Daylight Time (AEDT) i.e. Canberra time) 28 February 2016.

Self-prepared applicants and EMDG consultants not approved to lodge late, must lodge claims from 1 July 2015 to 30 November 2015.
