Australian small business owners can learn the secrets to making their business work smarter at the Small Business Fair.
The Fair will be held in the following locations:
- Penrith Panthers Leagues Club on 28 February from 7.30am-2pm
- Strathfield Event Centre on 1 March from 7.30am-2pm
- Club Central Hurstville on 2 March from 8.30am-2pm
Hosted by the Department of Jobs and Small Business, the fairs will showcase Australian Government services helping businesses grow, with live presentations and valuable advice from the people delivering those services.
The fairs will also help people keen to start their own small business learn about setting a strong foundation in their first year of operation.
With Australia’s 3.3 million small businesses under pressure to carve out their success alongside rapidly changing technology, many first-time entrepreneurs can struggle to keep their business afloat in the first 12 months.
The fairs are geared towards easing that pressure.
Attendees will get hands-on digital coaching in business management and marketing, advice on simplifying tax, tips to be competitive in securing Government contracts, information to access wage subsidies and guidance to build a business from scratch.
The Fair is a one-stop-shop where people who want to start or grow their business, can speak with locally-based Government agencies about simplifying taxes, using digital marketing and e-commerce tools, selling to Government and prioritising wellbeing.
The Fair will feature keynote speakers, live demonstrations, presentations and practical advice from local business coaches.
Part of the Government’s suite of initiatives to help make small businesses grow include streamlining GST reporting, supporting business owners through their transition to digital formats and easing regulatory constraints.
The Government has also extended immediate deductions on full-cost assets costing less than $20,000 to 30 June 2019. It has also launched the Future Female Entrepreneurs Program focused on engaging 55,000 women and girls, particularly in rural and regional communities.
