New Measures Delivering Deregulation for Australian Business

My Government’s deregulation agenda package is working to remove impediments to further investment and create jobs across small businesses. 

 

The Deregulation Package will introduce measures such as:

 

Establishing a new consolidated online checklist to guide employers through the steps involved in employing their first person, saving time and costs, and giving businesses confidence they are meeting their obligations across multiple agencies – from minimum pay and conditions to tax and superannuation; also developing a prototype to test the viability of a ‘regtech’ platform to take employers step-by-step through this same process.

 

Modernising Australia’s business registers to make it easier and quicker for business to interact with government, including upgrading and consolidating 32 separate business registers onto a single system. The new registry will allow business to view and manage their data in one location using a tell-us-once principle and lay the foundation stone for future ‘regtech’ initiatives.

 

Boosting Australian food exports, by establishing a modern digitised export documentation system to offer food exporters faster, simpler and more secure certification to replace the existing paper based system for both applications and the issuing of certificates; establishing a new trade information service for business on how to export; and better leveraging the Trusted Trader Program and Known Consignor Scheme to expedite the flow of cargo.

 

We are also busting through green tape, getting beneficial major projects up and running by trialling a digital environmental approvals process.
