Small business without Job Keeper

- By AgBiz Assist

IT’S not hard to see that just finding the time to work on your business rather than working in your business is possibly the number one challenge faced by small business operators.

This is especially relevant as things start to ramp up and businesses continue the process of re-defining what ‘normal trading’ conditions look like.

We appreciate that running a small business can be challengin­g.

There is no avoiding the reality that for some, the demise of Job Keeper funding has compounded the demanding conditions of the past year and created some extra headaches.

Please take heart though because fortunatel­y, there is plenty of help at hand.

Sole Traders and small business operators who currently have a valid Australian Business Number (ABN) and are based in North East Victoria or Goulburn Valley can take advantage of the free and confidenti­al services Assist Small Biz provides thanks to the support of the Australian and Victorian Government­s.

Our highly regarded team of small business specialist­s continue their work in assisting small business owners by giving them a hand to get the basics right with proper business planning and budgeting.

While some of the most common areas of concern are low profitabil­ity, tight cash flow, unpaid debtors and creditors or having difficultl­y accessing finance, we are also aware that there are just as many businesses looking to change their business models or seeking new opportunit­ies to position the business for the future.

Eligible businesses can access programs and grant opportunit­ies that may be available for those looking for ways to diversify, expand or attract new business.

Perhaps we can help you access assistance with such things as staffing arrangemen­ts or acquiring new skill such as creating a media presence.

If you would like to discuss your unique business requiremen­ts we are happy to come to your place of business or another location that suits.

Please contact Assist Small Biz directly on 1300 032 332 or at info@ agbizassis­t.org.au.
