Welcome to Small Business Association of Australia, we are a young and dynamic organisation that specialises in the support of the SME (small and medium enterprise) sector.
SBAA is Australia's premier small business organisation providing professional advice to entrepreneurs who are either thinking of going into business or who are already in business.
We are a highly active group that aims to bring to small business the tools they need to succeed, while at the same time working to remove the shackles imposed on the sector by governments at all levels.
One of my great joys is providing guidelines to budding young entrepreneurs trying to make their mark in the business world and then tracking their road to success.
However, many times I have seen vibrant and innovative businesses suffer due to the constraints imposed by the indifference of bureaucracy and the ever increasing web of red tape they must navigate to keep their doors open.
We understand that running a small business is tough. The business owner has to be a Jack of all trades, managing tasks that a bigger business would either outsource or employ specialists to manage.
Yet small businesses account for more than half of the jobs created in the private sector and their survival is integral to the nation's economic health.
Our core objective is to minimise the rate of failure in small business and to promote the world's best practice in business through our action plans.
If you are a small business owner, I would urge you to join SBAA and help us achieve a better deal for the millions of small business owners across Australia.
