As an independent voice, the Commissioner is a passionate supporter and advocate of small businesses while striving to resolve any issues impacting on their day-to-day operation.
If your business has a problem, we want to help. Whether it’s speaking up for your business at the highest levels, or working to influence and change government policy, we can help you identify opportunities and overcome obstacles.
As a neutral mediator, we can offer the best chance of resolving your retail or other commercial lease dispute before being heard in court. We can also help with other civil matters which might involve other businesses or government agencies.
We're here to answer questions, help resolve common business issues and make it easier to do business. We engage directly with businesses and their representatives to understand the concerns of small business and the key issues they face.
If you’re a small business looking for help, an enterprise looking to grow, or a local Council, we’re here for you.

Bev Barnfather, Ladybird Gifts
I am thrilled to report that our dispute with our landlord has now finally been resolved ... At all times you acted with the utmost professionalism and you were an absolute pleasure to work with.
Annabel O’Flynn, Grooove Graphic Design
I was so impressed with the knowledge, care and attention invested by your team - and the mindful follow-up. Without the budgets to access good legal and business advice, it is sometimes hard to achieve just outcomes, or stand up for our rights. Many thanks.
Nicole Bullivant, Elorcin Consulting
A great service to small business. Very professional and prompt. Thank you so much.
Rosie Siemer, Sitting Bull, Business Far West
It’s a challenge for small businesses in our region to keep up with important news. The Commissioner has been a vital source of news and updates on government assistance and other critical information, such as COVID-19 rules.
