Confidence in Queensland's small and medium businesses is continuing to freefall under a Labor Government addicted to tax.

LNP Deputy Leader Tim Mander said the latest Sensis Business Index report was a damning indictment on the Labor Government and its ability to deliver for small and medium businesses.

"This is just the latest in a series of independent reports that shows the Palaszczuk Government is hurting Queensland businesses," Mr Mander said.

"Confidence in Queensland's small and medium businesses has now fallen below the national average and yet the Labor Government is planning to introduce more taxes in the next state budget.

"The Labor Government's failure to deliver for small and medium businesses is plain for all to see.

"It's not good enough that Annastacia Palaszczuk is happy to give tax breaks to billionaire Hollywood producers to film Dora while a whopping 88 per cent of businesses say they are not getting any support from the Labor Government.

"It's not fair that Annastacia Palaszczuk was more worried about speeches rather than listening to Gold Coast businesses concerned about the impact of the Commonwealth Games.

"It's no wonder the Queensland Government is the least popular in the nation with small and medium businesses when it has introduced five new taxes since November.

"You can't tax your way to growth and Labor is risking Queensland's future by continuing to hike up taxes."

Mr Mander said the report showed small and medium businesses' attitudes toward Labor's policies were poor.

"Small businesses are Queensland's biggest jobs creators and should be given the tools to be successful, not taxed into the ground," he said.

"The Liberal National Party would work with small businesses to ensure they can continue to drive Queensland's economy and create jobs."
