It’s Time to Lead for all Australians

Mark McKenzie

On 18 May 2019, Australians will go to the polls to elect the 46th Australian Parliament. At one level, the election offers a choice between the Red Team (Labor led by opposition leader Bill Shorten) and the Blue Team (the Liberal and National Coalition led by PM Scott Morrison and Deputy PM Michael McCormack). Sadly, many Australians have become so disillusioned with the quality of national political leadership in recent years that the choice for them may simply come down to which colour they dislike least.

COSBOA Advocacy Projects

Peter Strong

One way that COSBOA supports small business is through its advocacy projects. Two recent projects were centred upon energy and encouraging small business owners to employ people with a disability. Another project that COSBOA has been running is in coordination with Paddl Co. and aims to connect small businesses and emerging talent to find innovative solutions to business problems.

Franchising – David versus Goliath! Can The System Ever Be Perfect?

Bruce Gleeson

Despite reviews of the Franchising Code in 2007, 2010 and 2013, recent Franchisee disquiet regarding high profile retail franchises and indeed Franchisor failure (i.e. Red Lea Chickens) have many parties asking whether or not there should be further amendments to the Code and other legislation. This article will make three (3) observations regarding possible changes. Indeed in late March 2018 the Federal Government has announced another enquirer whereby the Committee appointed is due to report back to Government in September 2018.

Want to Lease A Commercial Property? Think Twice!

Daniel Moisyeyev

There is no argument that real estate is one of the most important (if not the most important) systems in Australian society. This may be just my personal opinion, but I feel that almost every Australian has a secret desire to be a property investor – after all, it is where most of the money seems to be made. Indeed the standard for success in Australia is to get a good job, save up (or get your parents to go guarantor if you are lucky), make an appointment with your friendly mortgage broker and get into the market. I've even seen an article that called property investors “entrepreneurs”. This is the standard path that Australians are expected to follow.
