Big Plans for Small Business

We know that small businesses are the engine room of the Queensland economy, working across every industry sector.

That's why the Palaszczuk Labor Government has supported more than 18,000 small businesses across Queensland, through our $196 million Small Business Adaption Grants program.

Our Queensland Economic Recovery Plan has supported businesses to help keep 334,000 Queenslanders in jobs.

We've also been supporting businesses by introducing a target earlier this year - that from 1 July 2020, 25 per cent of all government purchases would be from Queensland small and medium sized businesses.

Our commitment to 'Big Plans for Small Business' is all about creating jobs and future proofing Queensland.

We have already announced $8 billion in measures to support Queenslanders through COVID-19, including assistance for workers and businesses.

We're committing to building on our support of more than $2.3 billion in tax relief, grants, electricity rebates and loans for small to medium sized businesses with another $140 million to support big plans for small business.

Only a Palaszczuk Labor Government will continue to back our small businesses to ensure they can recover, reopen and build a strong future for all Queenslanders.
