Small businesses are the beating heart of the Australian economy.
When small businesses are healthy, all Australians are better off.
It means more jobs, more choice, better living standards and more vibrant and connected communities.
When you work hard, build your business and invest in your community you are having a go. And you will get a go under the Coalition.
That’s what the Liberals and Nationals believe in.
That’s why we are backing small business to invest, employ more workers and grow their business.
We will lower taxes for small, medium and family businesses.
We will make it easier for them to employ even more Australians.
We will incentivise their investment in productivity-enhancing equipment.
We will expand their access to finance.
We will ensure they have the skills they need for today and tomorrow.
We will ensure they get a fair go by stopping big business abusing their market power.
We will ensure they are paid on-time by government and larger businesses.
We will lift the red tape and paperwork burden.
We will enable them to get their products to their customers more quickly with modern transport infrastructure.
We will give them access to billions of global consumers with market-opening trade agreements.
We will ensure they have affordable, reliable and sustainable energy.
We will help them seize the opportunities provided by the digital economy.
We will support their mental health and wellbeing so they can support their family, business, employees and local community.
We will support tens of thousands of Australian women through our female entrepreneurs programs.
It is part of our plan for a stronger economy that provides the settings and opportunity for business to do what it does best.
