CCIQ needs your help!
This year, CCIQ will be conducting the largest study of regulatory compliance in Queensland. 12-months since the initial COVID-19 lockdown, we have a particular focus on overburdensome regulation, otherwise referred to as Red Tape. This is because, while budgets will be tight, regulatory reform represents a cost-effective means of stimulus that will unlock business potential in Queensland.
The team at CCIQ have been on a journey to ease the regulatory burden imposed on businesses like your own since 2009. We view this as a necessary step in ensuring that Queensland is a place where people feel encouraged to start and grow a business.
Our survey in 2017 found that:
1) 7 in 10 businesses believed that government regulation had a moderate to major impact on their business
2) 7 in 10 businesses lost productivity by having to divert the efforts of key personnel to ensure regulatory compliance
3) Regulatory compliance cost Queensland businesses $13.4 billion. Fast forward to 2021, and this figure is likely to have surpassed $20 billion.
CCIQ are keen to hear from businesses of all sizes and from all industry sectors. Through this survey, CCIQ will be able to shine a bright and unwavering light on the complexity, cost, and time of red tape. In doing so we will be able to highlight to government how it is adding to the cost of running your business, is reducing employment opportunities and is unnecessarily increasing the cost of living for all Queenslanders.
All survey returns are strictly confidential. Please take the few moments to complete the survey by COB Friday 29 October 2021. If you have any questions about the survey please contact CCIQ’s Advocacy Team on 1300 731 988.
