Changes for Small Business Welcomed

By Louise Morrin

The Housing Industry Association is applauding a new bill that proposes changes for small businesses in the housing industry. 

The bill will help "restore balance to Australia's industrial relations framework and increase productivity in the economy," noted HIA Industrial Relations Spokesman David Humphrey. 

Businesses may have struggled under burdens and costs inflicted by the Fair Work Act 2009, noted Mr Humphrey. 

The changes could be good news for small business who deal with real estate in Carlton and its nearby suburbs.

With demand for property high in Sydney, the promise of new properties will please both home buyers and investors.

The proposed changes may make things fairer for those who do the building. 

Changes to union activity are also highlighted in the bill. Furthermore, adjustments to annual leave provisions have been tabled.

According to the release, "many of the changes simply give effect to recommendations from the previous government's Fair Work Review Panel and reverse laws passed during the previous parliament that were introduced with no consultation with the housing sector."

A framework that better supports small business is a step in the right direction for the housing industry. If you're looking to sell or buy as a homeowner, the experts at Ray White Carlton can help lead you through the process.
