Small Business Regulation Review

Cutting red tape and reducing regulatory burden on small business is a priority for the Victorian Government. To help achieve this, the Department of Economic Development, Jobs, Transport and Resources (DEDJTR) is leading a review of regulation impacting on small businesses. 

The program is made up of a series of reviews focusing on regulatory issues for small businesses within specific sectors.

  • The first sector to be reviewed was Victoria’s retail sector. A Draft Action Statement was released in May 2017. The final reforms will be released soon.
  • The second review, looking at the visitor economy sector, commenced public consultation in June 2017. The Action Statement will be released soon.
  • The third review targets the way regulators interact with small businesses, with a focus on the construction sector. Consultation is underway, with reforms expected later this year.
