Fair Trading NSW is seeking feedback on a number of reforms in the Better Business Reforms package.

What's this about?

The Better Business Reforms aim to create opportunities for small businesses by reducing costs and complexity without reducing consumer protections.

The reforms also increase transparency and protections in consumer transactions without overly burdening businesses.

A small number of the reforms require further consultation before they are finalised and implemented.

The Better Business Reforms Implementation options paper provides more detailed information about some of the reforms and sets out options for consideration. These include:

  • Disclosure of key terms by a trader when providing goods or services to consumers.
  • Disclosure of commissions and referral fees by a trader when providing or referring goods or services to consumers.
  • Streamlining and harmonisation of the uncollected goods requirements.
  • Owners corporations to have a choice of utilities supply agreements in strata complexes.
  • Repeal of the Innkeepers Act 1968 and the Landlord and Tenant Act 1899.
