How to use the ZEV subsidy portal

Using the ZEV subsidy portal is easy. Admin and standard users can create and keep track of subsidy orders and see details about remaining subsidies in the portal. The processes for individual customers and business customers are slightly different.

Determining the purchase price eligibility

Any ZEV purchase where the dutiable value is above $68,740 will not be eligible to receive the subsidy. The example invoices below show where the purchase price of the car is assessed against the $68,740 threshold to determine eligibility for the subsidy.

How to display the subsidy amount in a tax invoice

You are also required to upload the tax invoice document in the portal. The Tax Invoice must itemise the ZEV Subsidy. To overcome barriers within Dealer Management Systems, you can either display the subsidy as a discount (see Example 1) or a deposit (see Example 2). The example invoices show where you should display the amount in each scenario.

This fact sheet shows where the purchase price of the car is assessed against the $68,740 threshold to determine eligibility for the subsidy:
