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.
Applicants who prepare and lodge their own claims, and EMDG consultants not approved to lodge late, MUST lodge claims from 1 July 2015 to until mid-night Austalian Eastern Daylight Time (AEDT) 30 November 2015.
