Information for small business owners
If you’re a small business in NSW, the NSW Small Business Commissioner is your biggest ally. 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.
Our team manages the Retail Security Bond Scheme in NSW, which means if you have a cash bond for your retail shop, you’ll need to lodge it with us.
We’re here to help.
