SA franchising reforms will bring industry to a halt, according to FCA

Written on the 5 October 2010 by Franchising

Proposed changes to South Australia's franchising system, which include implementing state-wide rather than national legislation, would cause investment in the state's franchising sector to grind to a halt, said the Franchise Council of Australia (FCA).

On 1 October, the Rann Government announced the appointment of a Small Business Commissioner and proposed new state laws that it believes will provide franchisees with improved legal protection.

The changes were created by SA backbencher Tony Piccolo last year and have now been taken up by former Transport Minister, now newly appointed SA Small Business Minister Tom Koutsantonis.
