Small Business Friendly

What does it mean to be Small Business Friendly?

The Small Business Friendly (SBF) is led by the Queensland Small Business Commissioner and recognises local Councils that actively support small businesses.


The Chamber is proud to be a co-signatory to the Bundaberg Regional Councils Small Business Friendly Charter and will work with Council to find ways to improve the environment in which small businesses operate.

      • We will ensure fair procurement and prompt payment terms for small businesses.
      • We will support small business resilience and recovery
      • We will measure and report on our performances.
