Attorney General to Reduce Red Tape for Business

Clifford Gouldson was pleased to sponsor the recent Toowoomba Chamber of Commerce breakfast where Attorney General Bleijie spoke.
Around 100 guests heard the Attorney General discuss a variety of topics relating to legislative change and reform under the Newman Government.
Of particular interest were his comments on:

  • Tearing up paper by removing sustainability declaration requirements relating to the sale of homes in Queensland.
  • Reducing the burden on Queensland homeowners by re-instating the transfer duty concession to home owners buying their principal place of residence in Queensland.
  • Reviewing the Property Agents and Motor Dealers Act (PAMDA) regulatory framework to try to free up business owners from unnecessary red tape and allow Queenslanders to make their own decisions without Government sticking their nose in unnecessarily.
  • Other efforts to review the over 200 pieces of legislation under his portfolio to find other ways to cut red tape for business in Queensland, including extending an invitation to business to contact him with thoughts on any areas where improvement could be made.
Ben has received some wonderful feedback from local businesses about the practical and pro-active approach taken by Clifford Gouldson Lawyers in engaging with Government to try to fix problems with legislation impacting upon business, which Ben spoke about on the morning as part of introducing the Attorney General at the event.
