Grants

Amazon Sellers operating internationally can get their hands on cash refunds from the Australian Government. We help FBA sellers apply for export grant money that can power their business growth.

The Short Version

Australian-based Amazon Sellers operating on the international market may be eligible for cash refunds through the Australian Government’s Export Market Development Grant (EMDG).

The grant allows Australian businesses to grow their exports, and we help Amazon Sellers navigate the complexities of applying for the EMDG and securing refunds to support your business.

Who is eligible for the grant?

To be eligible for the EMDG, you need to be an international seller - for example, selling on the Amazon US or UK marketplaces - and you need to provide evidence that your products were designed in Australia. Your application needs to show that a significant amount of your products’ value was created here. We ensure all your product information is documented properly for assessment by the Government. We have a 100% success rate in securing grants for eligible applicants.

EMDG cash refunds

You may be entitled for a refund of up to 50% on your eligible costs, to a maximum value of $150,000. The first $5,000 of your expenses are not reimbursable.

To make a claim, you need to have spent at least $15,000 on eligible costs in the past year. When you make your first claim, you’ll be able to claim expenses from the past two years.

Expenses eligible for refunds through the EMDG

The EMDG covers a broad range of international business expenses. The typical expenses of an Amazon Seller that may qualify for a refund include: 

  • PPC and paid advertising
  • Marketing agency fees
  • Photography for listings
  • Website and Shopify store fees
  • Keyword research tools
  • International trademarks and patents

 

How to apply for the grant

The key to a successful application is carefully documenting your eligibility. The application process is detailed, and you don’t want to miss out on expenses that might be eligible for reimbursement. Your application needs to be easily understood by the grant assessor to ensure you qualify. It also helps to have ready access to any evidence that can support your claim. An EMDG assessor will undergo an interview and audit process to test your eligibility. They’ll review your supporting evidence at the same time.

While the process can be complex, the good news is you don’t have to do it alone. Intrepid Advisory does the heavy lifting in preparing applications and providing any support you need throughout the audit process.
