COSBOA has developed a Policy Framework which outlines the public policies that support the achievement of COSBOA’s goals to champion the interests of small business in Australia.
Specifically, generic these policies have been developed with a view to supporting the practical achievement of the Association’s core Charter by demonstrating;
Equitable consideration. Ensuring that government legislative and regulatory frameworks take into account the interests of privately owned businesses and family owned enterprises of many differing sizes in Australia.
Policy leadership. Advocating policy positions that are likely to enhance the contribution of privately owned businesses and family owned enterprises of many differing sizes to the Australian economy.
Industry leadership. Provide leadership with respect to the responsible business and employment practices of privately owned businesses and family owned enterprises of many differing sizes in Australia.
Making these COSBOA policy statements public is intended to promote a greater understanding of COSBOA’s advocacy role and core areas of public policy interest.
