Support for Small Business Made Easy

The Australian Government is committed to supporting small business owners achieve their goals and recognise the diverse challenges of running a small business.

To make it easier to find the right support for individual businesses, the Australian Government has created a helpful tool that filters relevant and localised support for small business owners.

Support available to all small businesses across Australia includes; business advice, how to maximise relevant tax cuts and how to reduce red tape – as detailed below. 


The Australian Small Business Advisory Service (ASBAS) provides low-cost advisory and information services on funding avenues and financial analysis; how to build a business; human resources; management capabilities and digital engagement.

Tax Cuts

Until 30 June 2018, a business with a turnover less than $10 million can reduce their tax burden by purchasing, and deducting immediately in full from their income; business items such as computers or technical equipment that cost less than $20,000 each. 

Less Red Tape

Business activity statements (BAS) are never fun; simplified GST seeks to make book-keeping and reporting requirements that bit easier.  And paying employees their super can also be a task bound in red tape.  But for businesses with less than 19 employees, or those with an aggregated turnover of less than $10 million, a single electronic payment to the Small Business Superannuation Clearing House will enable direct payment to each employees choice of super fund. Just another way Government is supporting small business to reduce red tape.

With the New South Wales state election complete, we now have a Labor government in place in every state except Tasmania and an 18 month window without any elections occurring.  
This provides a period where we may see significant reform and potentially for national alignment in key policy areas across Australia.  

The rich tapestry of neurodiversity

There is a slow shift towards incorporating design aspects that create more inclusive shopping experiences for customers of all neurotypes. Retailers willing to explore this hidden customer segment can deliver a more easy, engaging and inclusive experience both in-store and online.
