Small Business Friendly

​As part of our commitment to supporting our local business community we are delighted to announce that we have signed the Small Business Friendly Local Governments Charter.

This initiative, developed by the Small Business Development Corporation, formally recognises local governments that are demonstrating, or working towards, ‘better practice’ in engaging with their small business community.

By signing the Charter we have committed to small businesses by:

• offering enhanced customer service

• reducing red tape

• making on-time payments

• having a process in place to handle disputes

• introducing other activities to improve the operating environment for small businesses in their area

The City of Bunbury is proud to be ‘small business friendly’.

Additionally, the City is participating within the Small Business Friendly, Better Approvals Program. The Program, delivered by the Small Business Development Corporation, aims to streamline approval processes, to make it easier for small businesses to apply for business licences and trading permits.
