Starting a new business can be a nightmare, with countless forms to fill out, regulations to consider and agencies to contact.

Campbelltown City Council has partnered with Service NSW to simplify the process for locals to set up a cafe, small bar or restaurant, through the Easy to do Business program, which was launched on Thursday, 24 May.

Through the program, 30 government  forms have been replaced with a single online application via Service NSW that will create opportunities for new businesses in the region.

Mayor of Campbelltown, Cr George Brticevic gave one example of the requirements small business people had to meet when planning to start a new venture.

“Until now cafés, small bars and restaurants had to navigate up to 75 regulations, 48 forms, 13 agencies and 30 phone numbers,” he said.

“That much red tape meant it could take up to 18 months for a new business to open its doors. That’s 18 months before they could even start to earn money.”

Cr Brticevic said starting a business could be a stressful time.

“It’s a huge financial and emotional risk,” he said. “I have the greatest admiration for anyone who takes that leap of faith to make their dream a reality. That’s why it’s important that we do everything we can to support them.”

Easy to Do Business is a free service for business owners that offers specialised advice from a business concierge who will help them to navigate the complexities of starting or growing their business.
