Small Business Australia is a voice for the five million people working in the small business sector.

Through strength in numbers we bring ideas, research, advocacy and buying power that improves small business conditions and makes a positive difference for businesses, team members and the local communities we serve and support.

Together with our supporters, we help more Aussie small businesses not just survive, but thrive.


Small businesses are the backbone of the economy and the heart and soul of local communities. With over 2 million small businesses in Australia supporting the livelihood of more than 5 million people, the small business sector is a big deal. 

Small Business Australia is a membership group created by small business people, for small business people. We advocate the interests of small business owners and team members to all levels of government, and promote key issues in the media, so we clear the roadblocks and allow more small businesses to be successful. 



Among the many benefits of joining together, your free membership enables you to have your say at all levels of government, and gives you exclusive buying power benefits.

What we ask of you

By necessity, small business owners are creative, innovative and decisive. We want to hear your ideas for how things can be improved. From time to time we’ll seek your solutions to key issues affecting the small business sector at local, state and national levels.
