October is NSW Small Business Month, now in its second year. Organised by the NSW Department of Industry, activities will be held from 1 to 31 October in local communities across NSW.
In our own local government area, the City of Parramatta will hold and participate in a number of activities to support Small Business Month.
The council is collaborating with a number of organisations to deliver a suite of activities for local small businesses. Collaborators include Western Sydney Business Centre, Parramatta College and Western Sydney Skills Hub and the Australian Taxation Office.
Among the activities are workshops covering basic accounting, taxation and reporting obligations and social media and marketing training.
