Small Business

As a small business owner for 10 years, I know some of the challenges and costs as well as the great sense of achievement. In Parliament, I want to support small businesses in a globalised economy, challenge the old parties to support and embrace the new economy, and help small businesses learn and use the many new platforms available to help their businesses grow.

While the Small Business Commissioner is a good step, small businesses need more proactive help and support through key stages and economic changes.

    Furthermore the New Enterprise Incentive Scheme (NEIS) need to be promoted and expanded.
    Expanded because at the moment it is for job seekers who are receiving money from Centrelink.
    If you are job seeker and not qualified to receive money from Centrelink, you are not qualified for NEIS.
    Therefore it needs to be expanded to all job seekers.

    In Chatswood, there is a business school call that mentor people in running a small business. Maybe you can help create something similar in the city.
