Because as a small business owner or manager, you spend a significant amount of time working with government agencies regarding compliance, tax, surveys or trade and innovation, the aim is to make it easier and more efficient to deal with these agencies.

Hosted by Small Business Minister Craig Foss, you’ll get the opportunity to talk directly to the agencies you deal with on a day-to-day basis.

Topics covered

Experts from several different agencies will outline government support available for businesses, discuss new legislation and how to comply, and answer any questions business owners might have, including:

Government support for businesses — and how to find it.
