Supporting Tasmanian businesses to get the job done

To support Tasmanian businesses to remain the most the confident in the nation, the Tasmanian majority Liberal Government is continuing to remove red tape barriers and over regulation.

The latest Tasmanian Red Tape Audit Report confirms 84 per cent of the 125 identified red tape issues have now been resolved, equating to over 100 red tape reforms.

These reforms have made doing business in Tasmania easier.

We now have the fastest growing economy in the nation, our businesses are the most confident in Australia and we have created 20,000 more jobs since coming to office in 2014.

Our Red Tape reforms are just one of the ways we can ensure we maintain the current economic momentum by continuing to build business confidence to create jobs, now and into the future.
