The Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry’s first National Red Tape Survey was published in 2012. Its aim was to examine the costs and complexity of regulatory compliance in Australia from a business perspective. Now in its third year, the survey seeks to build a time series of information that can be used to measure the impact of regulation on the Australian business community over time
The ACCI 2015 National Red Tape Survey was distributed through ACCI’s state and territory based chamber of commerce and industry association members from 20 August to 15 November 2014.
A total of 709 businesses were surveyed, representing different business sizes and across all industries. The majority of businesses responding to the survey had between 1 and 49 employees and operated only in one state, clearly representative of the small and medium business sector.
