"No state-based laws" according to 95% of Franchise Council Members

Written on the 4 June 2010 by Franchise Council of Australia

A proposed new set of franchising rules for South Australia is opposed by more than 95% of franchise executives, a survey of Franchise Council of Australia (FCA) members has found.

The biennial survey showed that 95.1% of respondents believe the Australian franchise community should be regulated by uniform National regulation – and not separate state rules.

Of those surveyed, 84% also believe the proposed rules would detract from the value of franchise systems in SA and close to 80% indicated that if implemented, the legislation would influence their attitudes towards investment in the state.

“The results of the survey formalise what we have suspected for some time – that there is almost unanimous opposition to this initiative,” said Steve Wright, Executive Director of the Franchise Council of Australia.
