Australia to get a small business commissioner, but what will they do?

Mediator ethics

In the span of such a few weeks, Australian small businesses have seen a small business minister appointed to Cabinet, the announcement of a federal small business commissioner and the likelihood of a tax cut from July.

Not a bad run for a sector that often feels overshadowed by big business. The Gillard Government says the new small business commissioner will be named this year, with an office to be established in 2013.

Shadow small business Minister Bruce Billson says the Coalition’s idea for a small business and family enterprise ombudsman was designed to mediate commercial disputes that state commissioners couldn’t address.
