Information portal for small business owners – all the contacts you need in one place
The Australian Chamber of Commerce (ACCI) has launched a website delivering practical assistance and infrastructure to help fire-affected small-to-medium sized businesses to access critical information, in one central location. The site lists all available funding and grants from federal and state governments as well as information and resources – from financial advice, insurance and tax, to what work health and safety precautions business owners need to take – and is being updated on a daily basis.
