Small business operators in the Dandenong area will be able to access support and government business services when the Small Business Bus visits in October.

This is part of the assistance offered by the Andrews Labor Government, from cuts to payroll tax in to mentoring and advice services.

This support for small business has contributed to Victoria being the best state in Australia in which to build a small business.

Through the bus the small business mentoring specialists provide advice in marketing, finance, human resources and sales. These experts have extensive experience in operating small businesses and in senior business management roles.

In 2018-19 more than 1090 small businesses accessed the free on-board mentoring, with a further 771 receiving advice and information.

This year’s program will take information and services to towns across the state, benefiting businesses that may not have the time or resources to otherwise access the available support.

The Small Business Bus will be located at:

  • Harmony Square, Cnr Lonsdale & Walker Sts Dandenong, from 10am to 4pm on Wednesday October 23, and
  • Dandenong Market Carpark, Clow St and Cleeland Street Dandenong, from 10am to 4pm on Friday October 25

Free mentoring sessions on board the bus are limited and bookings are essential.

For more information or to book a session, visit or call Small Business Victoria on 13 22 15.
