On behalf of the 5 million people who operate and work in Australian Small Businesses, thank you for visiting this page.
Never in Australia’s history have so many Australians been at risk of losing their small businesses and their jobs. We need help from every Australian, every strong business and every level of Government – Federal, State and Local.
These simple policies will make an immediate difference:
- Protect small business owners from legal bankruptcy due to losing their business due to the COVID response.
- Simplify income support and loan programs to provide an ongoing Small Business Saver program quickly
- Increase % of total government spending that goes to Australian businesses and publish every six months
- Provide Direct Small Business Saver payments that can be accessed by all Small Businesses, including the 1.2 million self-employed small business owners.
- Introduce a fast and straightforward pro-rated commercial rent solution to keep small businesses afloat.
- Use world’s best practices for COVID testing, tracing and treatments and build community confidence to Keep Well and Buy Local
- Increase % of government spending that goes to State-based businesses and publish every six months.
Local Governments (Councils and Shires)
- Change regulations and by-laws to allow home-based businesses to start and operate
- Allow street-side businesses to provide on footpath services and recreational businesses to use parks without the existing red tape processes
- Increase % of council spending that goes to local area based businesses and publish every six months.
