Small business operators across the Mildura electorate area will be able to access support and government business services when the Small Business Bus visits over the coming three months.
This is part of the assistance offered by the Andrews Labor Government, from cuts to payroll tax to mentoring and advice services, and so much more.
Member for Northern Victoria, Mark Gepp MP welcomed the next business bus route which will visit many regional and rural areas across Victoria.
Through the bus, small business mentoring specialists provide advice in marketing, finance, human resources and sales. These experts have extensive experience in operating small businesses and in senior business management roles.
This year’s program will take information and services to towns across the state, benefiting businesses that may not have the time or resources to otherwise access the available support.
The Small Business Bus will be visiting the following locations:
Hopetoun – Tuesday 18 February 2020
