Small business assistance to be strengthened

The Small Business Minister Bruce Billson has announced the creation of a Small Business and Family Enterprise Ombudsman with stronger Powers.

As ACCI’s Chief Operating Officer John Osborn said this week, small business wanted an Ombudsman with teeth and it was great to see the government delivering on its campaign promise.

"Giving the Ombudsman stronger powers was a key policy priority in the very successful chamber led Small Business, Too Big to Ignore campaign prior to the 2013 Federal Election,” Mr Osborn said.

"What we need is someone with stronger powers to help resolve disputes, and a capacity to shape policy at the Commonwealth level while fighting red-tape.

“Although we need to see the final details, the chamber strongly supports the creation of an Ombudsman with a well-defined area of responsibility who is a strong and independent advocate for the more than two million small and family businesses in Australia.”

The Chamber is continuing to advocate on behalf of the business community of Erina regarding NBN, carparking, signage and street flags. We've had several productive meetings with Gosford council and the new member for Robertson, Ms Lucy Wicks. Of course, we won't get everything we want immediately, but there is progress on several issues.

Our members' directory has now been updated to display by category. If you think your business is not in the right place, please email us immediately.
