At any time, the Office of the Queensland Small Business Commissioner has a range of activities underway to enable and empower Queensland small businesses.

Small Business Friendly program

Description: The SBF program provides the framework, support and tools required to help local governments, Queensland Government agencies and large enterprise to realise their role in supporting small business. By bringing people together around a common goal, the program aims to enhance the operating environment for small businesses and provide the opportunities they need to thrive.
Commenced: May 2020
Completion: Ongoing
Update: The SBF program has now been established in Queensland and is transitioning to become part of our normal business as we seek to grow the SBF family.

Summertime Taskforce project

Description: The Summertime Taskforce was established to identify ways Queensland small businesses can expand trade to local outdoor spaces to support productivity and provide a report and action plan to the Minister.
Commenced: May 2021
Completion: December 2021
Update: The project is complete. The QSBC provided the Summertime Taskforce report (including recommendations), and both research papers undertaken as part of the project, to the Minister for Employment and Small Business on 3 December 2021. The government is currently considering the report.

Working with Office of Productivity and Red Tape Reduction

Description: We are working with the Office of Productivity and Red Tape Reduction to deliver small business regulatory reform and enhance the operating environment for small businesses in Queensland.
