The Department of Industry’s Single Business Service is streamlining the way businesses access industry information and service by putting their needs first – reducing red tape and providing quality, consistent services at the lowest possible cost.

Single Business Service assistance is universal – available to all Australian businesses – made up of a consolidated online presence accessible anytime and anywhere, a contact centre and a face-to-face business facilitation network to link interested businesses with relevant programmes and services.

Practical support includes:

– Information for businesses that is easy to find and understand

– Tailored advice for businesses when they choose to access it

– Direct links to services provided in the Entrepreneurs’ Infrastructure Programme, and

– Seamless connections with other Australian Government programmes or services like the R&D Tax Incentive and the Industry Skills Fund.
