Learn how regulators are working to level the playing field for small business in this webinar, with host Tracey Spicer and representatives from the ACCC, ATO, ASIC, Fair Work Ombudsman and the Australian Small Business and Family Enterprise Ombudsman.
The ACCC is urging small business owners to start preparing now for the ban on excessive payment surcharges that will apply to all businesses across Australia from 1 September 2017.
The new law limits the amount that a business can charge customers for use of payment methods such as EFTPOS (debit and prepaid), MasterCard (credit, debit and prepaid), Visa (credit, debit and prepaid) and American Express cards issued by Australian banks. It came into effect for large businesses last year.
Domino’s Pizza Enterprises Ltd (Domino’s) is the first company to pay penalties for alleged non-compliance with the Franchising Code of Conduct.
Following the issue of two infringement notices by the ACCC, Domino’s has paid penalties totalling $18,000. The ACCC issued the infringement notices because it believed that Domino’s had failed to comply with the requirement in the Franchising Code of Conduct to provide franchisees with both an annual marketing fund financial statement and an auditor’s report within the time limits prescribed under the Code.
