Rebate available for small exporters
Small exporters, listen up: there’s still time to apply for a rebate for your export registration charges for the 2014-15 financial year. The rebate covers 50% of export registration charges.
“The rebate is worth up to a maximum of $5000 to eligible exporters and is available in 2014-15 as part of the Coalition’s $15 million Package Assisting Small Exporters promised before the election and delivered in this year’s budget,” Agriculture Minister Barnaby Joyce said.
“This four-year package is all about helping small exporters of meat, dairy, grain, horticulture, eggs and seafood products improve their competitiveness and profitability in the international marketplace.
“Since this assistance package opened in August, my department has written to more than 2200 registered exporters inviting them to apply, and I’m pleased that we have already received 240 applications to date.”
Export businesses with a revenue of less than $10 million, and less than $20 million total revenue for domestic and export activities, are eligible for the rebate.
Applications for the rebate close on 31 October 2014. For more information about the rebate and to apply, visit www.daff.gov.au/biosecurity/export/package-assisting-small-exporters.
