Victoria’s bushfire recovery: we’re here for small business

The Victorian Small Business Commission is here to support small businesses recovering from the recent Victorian bushfires in any way that we can. This includes providing help with issues that might arise with business contracts including retail leases.

We’re offering bushfire-affected small business owners help in resolving disputes quickly and at no cost. Examples of support include:

  • early help over the phone
  • mediation to help resolve a dispute over a retail lease or where a business might not have been paid for the goods and services they supplied.

When you are ready, if you need our help, please know you can call us on 13 8722 to talk about your options.
