This year saw the much anticipated introduction of a new Small Business Financial Counselling (SBFC).
Through their well-developed rural and regional stakeholder relationships, RBS has been acutely aware of the heavy financial impact of adverse events on small businesses outside of primary production. Until now, they business remit has prevented them from working with small business owners beyond the farm gate.
In February 2020, RBS welcomed the announcement by the Australian Government of new funding to support eligible small business owners in drought affected areas.
The financial toll from the drought, bushfire and then COVID-19 resulted in welcomed additional government funding being directed their way.
They now have Small Business Financial Counsellors working throughout SA and NT. The team is working with business people from a range of sectors including rural supply stores, service stations/ garages, general stores/post offices, retail, cafes, builders, mechanics, freight/haulage companies and tourism enterprises
