Australian Grape and Wine Authority
From July 2018, the Australian Government introduced changes to the Wine Equalisation Tax (WET) legislation to improve the integrity of support for wine and cider producers, leading to a reduction in the WET rebate from a maximum of $500,000 to $350,000 from 2018–19. To assist the wine and cider industries to respond to these changes, the Australian Government has budgeted a one-off $50 million grant—the Export and Regional Wine Support Package (the package) to assist the industries and wine producing regions to increase their profitability and sustainability by:
- Growing broad industry participation in export markets and strengthening wine based regional tourism.
- Increasing demand and value of Australian wine through promotion, tourism and exports.
Stage 1 of the package was focused on developing a Business Plan, which details the activities and measures of success, for submission by 28 April 2017. ACIL Allen Consulting facilitated the development of this Business Plan.← Return to Strategy projects
