Media Releases - Kevin Anderson Media ReleaseNSW Shadow Minister for Small Business, Don Page MP, and The Nationals candidate for Tamworth, Kevin Anderson, today met with Gunnedah District Development Board members and outlined the Liberals and Nationals clear action plan to back small business.
"We have a plan to rebuild the NSW economy, this begins by improving the competitiveness of small business in towns and cities across the state like Gunnedah," Mr Page said.
"In speaking with Kevin over the last few months he has been saying that small business are doing it tough and we need to do something about it."
In Gunnedah alone there are more than 1300 businesses registered.
The first of the NSW Liberals and Nationals five key priorities is to rebuild the NSW economy through lower taxes and business growth.
Towards this end, the NSW Liberals and Nationals have a clear action plan to back small business. It includes:
Giving small business a voice by creating a Small Business Commissioner with a mandate to advocate for small business in NSW;Cutting red tape with the introduction of a 'One On, Two Off' rule for new regulations and a commitment to a 20 per cent reduction in red tape within our first term;Reforming business licensing with improved online access to licence applications and renewals; Reducing legislative risk by subjecting all new regulations to a risk analysis that specifically outlines the impact on small businesses; Regular consultation between small business and Government; and Ensuring NSW Government agencies pay bills within 30 days.
"The Liberals & Nationals have listened to small businesses in New South Wales. We understand the difficulties they have faced under the failed and incompetent State Labor Government," Mr Page said.
"As a small businessman myself I know that this Government doesn't seem to care about small business, that's certainly what I've heard from businesses in Gunnedah," Kevin Anderson said.
"The policy that Don Page has announced today will ensure small business are given a fair go and are not burdened with government bureaucracy."
