Australian content guidelines


The level of Australian content in an export contract is an important factor in determining the amount of financial support that we are able to provide. The following is a guide to Efic’s Australian content policy.

1. How much Australian Content?

The value of Australian content needs to be at least 1/3 of the total contract value for a transaction to be eligible for maximum Efic support

2. What can be included as Australian Content?

Goods manufactured or produced in Australia.

  • Inputs sourced from other Australian suppliers
  • Services performed by third parties in Australia or by Australians employed outside Australia
  • Profit
  • Australian Intellectual property

However please note that profit alone cannot be considered as sufficient Australian content even if it is worth more than 1/3 of total contract value.

3. Does it matter where the goods are exported from?

The export of goods should take place from Australia.

These criteria are a guide only. Even if your contract doesn’t meet all of them other considerations may warrant Efic’s support so please feel free to contact us to discuss your particular circumstances.
