We will help more people start, run and grow a business in South Australia.

What we'll do

A re-elected Marshall Liberal Government will support our small businesses to grow and create jobs with a $20 million business support package.

We will set up a business concierge service, subsidise cyber security training for small businesses and set up a new one-stop-shop online portal to streamline information and interactions between business and government.

A new dedicated team of expert Small Business Support Advisors will also be established – located within Service SA Centres at Prospect, Modbury and a regional area – to provide business owners with important face-to-face assistance.

Specifically, we will:

  • Establish Small Business Support Advisers who will provide free support and guidance to small businesses
  • Set up a multi-channel (email, web, video chat, face-to-face) concierge service for small business that includes dedicated case managers
  • Making it easier to do business by creating a one-stop, whole-of-government digital portal where grant applications, funding and other business transactions can all be done in one place
  • Protecting the money, data and reputation of small businesses by subsidising cyber security training for 1,000 small businesses

This builds on our announcement to support businesses by removing payroll tax for apprentices and trainees for a further two years – making it easier and cheaper for employers to create jobs and grow their business while providing vital training for young people.
