There is fantastic news for Queensland SMEs!

Annastacia Palaszczuk, Queensland Premier and Minister for Trade launched the Trade and Investment Queensland (‘TIQ’) Go Global Export Program on Thursday 6 Feb 2020.

What does this mean for you?

The Go Global Export Program makes $1 million in grants available to Queensland-based small and medium-sized enterprises (‘SMEs’) who are looking to enter a new international market.

TIQ will provide two level project funding, Micro Export Grants up to $5,000 (excl. GST) and Macro Export Grants up to $25,000 (excl. GST).

What are the eligible project costs?

  • Export business advisory services and tools;
  • Costs of product testing and redesign, packaging and labelling required to meet an export market requirement;
  • Support to gain export accreditation and Free Trade Agreement documents (expenses incurred to gain various export-related accreditation for, but not limited to, Good Manufacturing Practice, Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point or Halal accreditation);
  • Cost of a trial export program – e.g. logistics involved in delivering the first export activity in a new market;
  • Costs associated with product approvals, installation, training, operations, and maintenance required for a new client/market (travel is only accepted for these defined activities and not any business development purpose);
  • Professional advice (legal, accounting, financial) on contract negotiation, IP advice, counterfeit protection, attracting funding to scale up to meet demand.
