Letter to the Editor
Small businesses are the backbone of the Queensland economy and the heart and soul of our communities.
Strong small businesses contribute to the community in so many ways by getting involved, creating local jobs, and supporting other local businesses.
I have experienced the highs and lows of starting businesses in Kingaroy.
I understand the challenge of creating jobs, balancing the books, and know full well the impact government decisions can have on the viability of businesses.
Unnecessary red tape and slow cash flow makes it harder for businesses to grow and create jobs.
The Liberal National Party has a plan to get out of your way and let you get on with what you do best.
If elected at the October 2020 election, a Frecklington LNP government will commit to reduce red tape by 20 per cent over six years and deliver our Fair Pay Policy to boost small businesses.
In the Fair Pay Policy, government contracts up to $1 million would be paid within 20 calendar days, down from the current 30.
Reducing the time it takes for the State Government to pay its bills improves cash flow for small businesses.
Cutting red tape helps small business operators be more productive and focus time and money on what matters.
The next election is more than two years away, but the LNP is already spelling out exactly what a Frecklington Government would deliver.
These policies are about building a better future for business, delivering job security and backing small business to create more local jobs.
Liberal National Party Leader
