Speaking up for small business

The Office of the NSW Small Business Commissioner was created by the NSW Government as an independent and strong voice for small businesses within government.

We are here to help small businesses raise issues where you may think that government agencies, local councils or other businesses have acted unfairly.

Big business has more capability to express their views to government. Small businesses are often not members of industry bodies and associations that can make a case for them. And to try to lobby the government on your own as a small business would be a daunting task. That's where we can help.

We work with small businesses directly and with peak bodies to look for issues that are holding small businesses back unnecessarily. The Commissioner can make representations at the highest levels, query government policy, make suggestions, and generally speak up for small businesses whether it's an individual case or on behalf of a whole industry.
