The Federal Department of Industry is streamlining the way businesses access industry information and services by putting their needs first – reducing red tape and providing quality, consistent services at the lowest possible cost.

Single Business Service assistance is universal ­– available to all Australian businesses – made up of a consolidated online presence accessible anytime and anywhere, a contact centre and a face-to-face business facilitation network to link interested businesses with relevant programs and services.

As a part of this initiative, from 1 July 2014, the following websites have been merged into a consolidated, single resource for business: business.gov.au, ausindustry.gov.au, enterpriseconnect.gov.au, commercialisationaustralia.gov.au, skillsconnect.gov.au and crc.gov.au.
