Business Support Programs

Easy to do Business

Get a free and personal concierge to help you open your cafe, restaurant or small bar in NSW.

Sutherland Shire Council has partnered with Service NSW to simplify the process for locals to set up a cafe, small bar or restaurant, through the launch of the Easy to do Business program.

Easy to do Business is a free service for business owners that offers specialised advice from a Business concierge who will help them to navigate the complexities of starting or growing their business.

The Program is making it faster for entrepreneurs to set up their business and streamlines the business application processes via an online business portal through Service NSW.
