  • How will you improve regulation for small business & what changes you have planned for the next 1-2 years?
  • The NSW govt has issued a statement back in Nov18 where Premier Berejiklian: “specialist team to help resolve problems encountered by small businesses during the construction of major infrastructure projects across the State. Under the changes, small businesses will be provided with key information and options on what help and support they can access, and where necessary specialist case officers appointed by agencies as a key point of contact.” In our area of Sydney in particular, major infrastructure like North Connex have had huge disruptive impact to businesses. What would your team at Small Business Party specifically implement to support specific businesses experiencing a decline in foot traffic, sales and exposure? Have you spoken to any local businesses about this issue?
  • What is your long term plan for Payroll Tax in NSW? It’s one of the major financial burdens to small businesses who are growing and taking on staff. Isn’t it counter-intuitive to be increasing taxes businesses as they grow? 
  • If you became a member in the NSW Parliament would you have plans to improve innovation opportunities in the outer suburbs of Sydney? It seems that all the hubs with their collaboration space, speakers, educational opportunities and networking nights are kept at arm’s reach from the outer suburbs. Would you support one of these innovation hot spots in areas like Hornsby to drive innovation, collaboration and education?
