Review of regulation impacting small business retailers
The Small Business Regulation Review was announced in 2016 as part of the Victorian Government’s new approach to regulation reform. The review recognises the essential contribution that small businesses make to Victoria. With around 556,000 small businesses in Victoria, small businesses make up approximately 97 per cent of the State’s business sector and nearly half of all private sector jobs.
Through the review, government is examining how regulation is impacting the state’s small businesses across a number of sectors of the state’s economy. The review looks through the eyes of small businesses at the myriad of regulations and processes they need to deal with to start and grow a business.
The Draft Action Statement for the Small Business Regulation Review (Retail Sector) is now available and Victorians are encouraged to submit their feedback by 23 June 2017. Feedback received in response to the draft will inform the finalisation of these important reforms. The final reforms will be released later this year.
