We have a new small business commissioner, Robyn Hobbs OAM and isn’t she a fantastic person for cutting red tape with government processes. We all know how slow Governments have been in paying their bills, so the State Government has now released a faster payment terms policy as part of their commitment to small business to enable better cash flow. The main changes compared to the previous payment of accounts policy are if after 1st December 2018, payments must be made within 20 calendar days, the new policy
states; if after 31st December 2019, payments must be made within 5 business days. Eligible and registered small businesses that invoice up to $1 million will be paid in this time.
We all know how Essential Energy can hold up a project and development. If you have any examples please email us your story firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Camp Street Bridge work commences this weekend. It will be a bit of an inconvenience for about a year but it will be well worth it when Roads and Maritime Services complete the work.
I attended a Multicultural Morning Tea this week. It was interesting and also a great way for our new residents from other countries to get to know about their community.
