Policy

We represent our industry on a range of policy issues that help to boost private capital investment into small, medium and large sized businesses across the economy.

Every day, we engage with governments to shape policies that ensure our industry can continue to play a significant role in making Australian businesses more competitive and create new employment opportunities for all members of the community.

As a member of the Council, you can contribute to our policy and advocacy work through our written submissions or by direct engagement with government and other members of parliament.
