Minister for Small Business, John Barilaro and Minister for Innovation and Better Regulation, Victor Dominello announced that the NSW Government on track to achieve over $980 million in red tape savings since September 2011.
Mr Barilaro said red tape reduction is fast approaching $1 billion in savings, which is good for business, jobs and the economy as we lead in to the peak retail shopping season.
“We are giving small businesses and entrepreneurs the freedom to start up, scale up and develop instead of being bogged down by regulation,” he said.
Minister Dominello said the focus of the NSW Government is to remove regulation to make life easier for business, community organisations and individuals.
“By consulting with industry groups and the community, we have found numerous ways to reduce or improve regulation in NSW for the benefit of everyone,” he said.
Small business reforms include:
· Food safety supervisor – removal of notification requirements;
· Automatic mutual recognition of electricians from ACT, QLD and VIC; and,
· Egg Stamping exemption for small egg producers selling direct from farm gate.
