Small Business Updates: Illegal Logging/Franchising

Saturday, January 10, 2015

After a year of much talk and many promises, it's good to see that there's been some action on these two important small business issues.

On illegal logging and timber importation, we were vocal in our criticism of the government's proposed legislation in September and October last year. It's good to see that the PM’s parliamentary secretary for deregulation (now Assistant Treasurer) Josh Frydenberg has given a commitment to fix the problems.

On franchising, the new (and long overdue) Franchising Code started at the beginning of this year. Here is the Minister's announcement. The following information from the ACCC will be helpful for franchisees:
•    New guidance material
•    Updated versions of the franchisor compliance manual and the franchisee manual.
•    An explanatory video
