EMDG stands for Export Market Development Grant.

You get paid at the rate of 50 cents in the dollar above $5,000 subject to funding in scheme on a year-by-year basis as well as the impact of the "earnings test" for clients who have already been paid 2 grants.

The EMDG scheme requires that all applicants claiming their 3rd or subsequent grants demonstrate a level of export performance to qualify for their grant. You get paid the lower amount of your grant based on expenditure or a percentage of your export earnings (receipts) which decreases the longer you access the scheme.

The sliding scale is 40% of Export Earnings in Year 3, decreasing to 5% in Years 7 & 8.
