Small Business Friendly Council

 Small Business Friendly Council

Frankston City Council has signed up to the Small Business Friendly Council (SBFC) initiative, which the Victorian Small Business Commission is rolling out across the state in partnership with councils to help create a fair and competitive trading environment. 

The Small Business Friendly Charter outlines shared goals for the Victorian Small Business Commission (VSBC) and participating local councils in working together to create a fair and competitive trading environment for small businesses. When signing the Charter, local councils are making important commitments including to:

  • Pay small business supplier invoices within 14 days
  • Support local businesses in managing the disruption caused by infrastructure projects
  • Streamline approval processes for people looking to open a business in the area
  • Help set up and support local business networks.
