Help to start a business

THOUSANDS of residents have benefited from start-up business workshops, run by the Canterbury-Bankstown Business Advisory Service (CBBAS), since they began more than 10 years ago.

With more workshops starting soon, Mayor Khal Asfour says that if you need help starting down this path, then you should attend and “reap the real-life benefits”.

He said the bi-monthly New Enterprise Incentive Scheme (NEIS) Information Workshops, funded by the Department of Jobs and Small Business, are the most popular held by the CBBAS.

“Around 500 people a year have been assisted,” he said.

“In fact, these workshops have been so popular, we’ve needed to host 24 sessions over the past 12 months to meet demand.”

Business professionals at CBBAS can also help you understand the New Enterprise Incentive Scheme, and provide support during your first year of business operations.

The next NEISS Information Workshops will be held at CBBAS on June 13 and 27 and  July 11 and 26.
