Red tape stifling what you do?
Tim Webster & Tracey Spicer discuss red tape, and a new survey that found it is eroding competitiveness and the Australian Tax Office tops the list of bureaucracies for generating troublesome regulatory hurdles.
The ATO leads the NSW Business Chamber's fifth annual Red Tape Survey, followed by NSW local governments, safety regulators, Fair Work Australia and Centrelink.
Seven out of ten businesses surveyed indicated that the cost and time to comply with regulations have increased over the two years, with less than 1 per cent indicating those factors have decreased.
Tim & Tracey speak with Damian Kelly, Spokesperson for the NSW Business Chamber, who are calling for better ways to reduce red tape.
