Simplify Day 2017: have YourSAY

Simplify Day 2017 is underwayOver the next 30 days, the State Government is asking business and the community to speak up about what makes it difficult to conduct business in South Australia.

The Government will hold its annual red tape repeal day in 2017 focused on cutting unnecessary red tape and removing outdated and redundant legislation.

The first Simplify Day was held last year with the Premier leading work that successfully identified a broad range of reforms across our economy. This included reforms to fees, licences, permit, notification requirements and compliance that will make a real and lasting difference to the people and businesses affected.

Simplify Day 2016 delivered reforms such as removing labels for heavy vehicles, enabling electronic licensing and exempting non-active business partners from needing building licenses.

The Government also committed to a range of future considerations for the 2017 Simplify Day process. You can read about Simplify Day 2016, recent regulatory reforms and future reforms in the Simplify Day report.

Simplify Day 2017 will build on the momentum from last year and add to these reforms. Feedback is being asked about: things that make it hard to business in South Australia; ways of simplifying your obligations; and ideas for streamlining government services.

Following the period of public consultation the State Government will take all the comments and discuss them with industry and other interested groups to work out the best way forward.

A Bill will then be prepared to amend or abolish laws which are counterproductive to business or redundant.  The Government aims to introduce this to Parliament on the second annual Simplify Day in August 2017.
