The Palaszczuk Labor Government has again been savaged in a new survey by Queensland small to medium businesses.

Excessive bureaucracy, lack of incentives, too much notice taken of unions and not understanding small business were the leading criticisms of the Labor Government by small to medium sized businesses, according to the latest Sensis Business Index survey released today.

LNP Deputy Leader and Shadow Treasurer, Tim Mander, said the results were sadly par for the course when looking at the Palaszczuk Labor Government's economic and business record.

"For the three straight quarters Queensland's small business community has told us loud and clear that the Palaszczuk Labor Government's policies of more taxes, more regulation, and more debt are bad for businesses," Mr Mander said.

"Because of excessive red tape and union influence, the Palaszczuk Labor Government is once again the least popular government in Australia among small and medium sized businesses.

"Queensland's small and medium sized businesses are now the most pessimistic in Australia about where the economy will be in one year's time.

"With the highest unemployment rate in the nation and a ranking of sixth on the economic ladder by the CommSec State of the States, there's little reason to wonder why Queensland's business community has so little to be positive about.

"Labor just doesn't get small business.

"While the out-of-touch Labor Government is working against small business interests, the LNP has a plan to make doing business in Queensland easier by cutting red tape by 20 per cent, paying businesses working with the government faster, and busting congestion by building the infrastructure that Queensland needs."
