Small Business Regulation Review Program

Cutting red tape and reducing regulatory burden for small business is a priority for the Victorian Government. To help achieve this, the Department of Jobs, Precincts and Regions (DJPR) has delivered the Small Business Regulation Review (SBRR).

The SBRR program delivered a series of reviews focussed on regulatory issues impacting small businesses in the Retail, Visitor Economy and Construction sectors. Reviews looked through the eyes of small businesses at the regulations and processes they need to deal with to start and grow a business and find practical reforms to save businesses time and money.

Once fully implemented the three SBRR sector reviews are estimated to deliver between $317 million and $474 million per annum in direct benefits to small businesses.

If you have a question about the SBRR reforms please contact: smallbiz.review@ecodev.vic.gov.au.

Building on the Small Business Regulation Review Program

Building on the success of SBRR program, DJPR is now delivering the Better Approvals for Business Program to improve regulatory approvals and related processes to support economic recovery and jobs following the impacts of the pandemic.
