Small business in Western Australia - at a glance (as at 30 June 2020)
Notes on statistics
Statistics as of 30 June 2020.
In relation to the statistics, the SBDC uses the standard Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) definition of small business, which is any non-employing business or a business employing fewer than 20 people. However, for legal purposes, the definition of a small business is as stated in the Small Business Development Corporation Act 1983.
As with any analysis based on data sets it is subject to a degree of error. Individual numbers or percentages should not be used as absolutes
Statistics include only those businesses actively remitting Goods and Services Tax (GST). As such, small businesses not registered for GST are not captured in this data.
Notes on value of small business to WA economy:
Value of small business to WA economy is an estimate using a revised SBDC model based on previous work undertaken by ACIL Allen using ABS data. All figures are in nominal (ie. in 2019-20 dollars).
Total private sector economic activity excludes financial and insurance services and ownership of dwellings.
