Opening a café, restaurant or small bar just got easier
Sutherland Shire Council, in partnership with Service NSW, is making it easy to do business, with streamlined forms and one phone number to help fast track the approval process when opening a café, small bar or restaurant.
The Easy to Do Business Program aims to simplify the process for locals to set up a café, small bar or restaurant, making the process of opening or expanding a small business simpler and faster.
The time it takes to open up a business has reduced from up to 18 months to just 90 days or less so businesses can get started sooner.
Through one online portal local entrepreneurs will receive step-by-step guidance and support across local, state and federal government requirements.
Easy to Do Business is a free service for business owners that provides a dedicated business concierge who will help navigate the complexities of starting or growing a business.
That means businesses can spend less time on the paperwork and more time on their business.
Businesses wishing to start, run or close a café, restaurant or small bar can apply at Service NSW or phone 13 77 88.
