Small Business Conditions: Results from our survey

The Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry warmly invites you to a webinar where we will discuss the impacts of red tape on small businesses, and what measure the Government could put in place to help.

We will present the results of our inaugural Small Business Conditions Survey and will be joined by Bruce Billson, the Australian Small Business and Family Enterprise Ombudsman.

The results from the survey are stark: small businesses have been struggling for some time, and the situation is getting worse for many.

Despite their significant contribution to the Australian economy, small businesses are too often overlooked when it comes to policy making, legislation and regulations.   They must navigate an increasing number of regulatory changes, on top of keeping the doors open and grappling with the rapidly increasing costs of doing business.

Please join us to hear from small business advocates discussing the results of our survey, as well as what more can be done to help small businesses and where Government can assist.
