We have developed the Small Business Friendly Local Governments initiative to recognise local government authorities in Western Australia that are committed to actively supporting small businesses in their local area.
Local governments are encouraged to sign the Small Business Friendly Local Governments Charter to show they have committed to work with, and support, small business by:
- offering enhanced customer service
- reducing red tape
- making on-time payments
- having a process in place to handle disputes
- introducing other activities to improve the operating environment for small businesses in their area
Participating local governments will provide us with updates on how they are meeting these commitments.
