Sensis Business Index reveals WA c onfidence unchanged, remaining well under the national average.

Key highlights of the latest survey include:

  • The WA Government lost more support from small to medium size businesses in the lead up to the election loss.
  • Worried small to medium businesses see an unfavourable business environment and falling sales as prominent concerns. 
  • Positive businesses identify the primary driver was being an established, solid business. 
  • Last quarter, sales, profitability and employment remained negative, with wages barely positive, while prices were higher.
  • Current quarter expectations are positive for all key indicators but decreased for sales, profitability, employment and wages.
  • The main criticism is a perception the Government is only concerned with the interests of big business and doesn’t understand the needs of small business.
  • Those with a positive view see the WA Government as supportive and trying to reduce red tape.
