Resources for small business 

Self assessment checklist 

The small business self assessment checklist has been developed to help small businesses identify which aspects of their operations are regulated under the Australian Consumer Law (ACL).

The easy-to-follow tool has been designed to help small businesses become aware of their rights and obligations when dealing with consumers, how to comply with the requirements of the ACL and where to find more information.

The checklist was developed by a partnership of state, territory and federal consumer protection agencies.
