NSW Fair Trading Easy and transparent trading consultation paper

Posted by LNA Master Landscapers Association on 8 August 2018

Empowering consumers and small businesses

What is this about?

The NSW Government has opened public consultation on a range of possible reforms designed to empower consumers and small businesses in NSW by facilitating easy and transparent trading. The proposals focus on driving efficient markets, supporting economic growth and creating opportunities for innovation.

They would deliver on these objectives by:
  • Removing unnecessary red tape making it easier to do business
  • Increasing transparency and consumer choice

What are the changes?

The Department of Finance, Services and Innovation (DFSI) has undertaken a detailed review of legislation that NSW Fair Trading and SafeWork NSW regulate. 

Some of the possible changes include:

  • removing 13 categories of home building licenses;
  • removing duplicate and unnecessary record keeping and reporting requirements;
  • updating uncollected goods regulation;
  • repealing redundant statutes;
  • increasing the threshold for owner-builder permits to $20,000;
  • creating a central data portal on traders and licensees.
