NIBA's weekly e-newsletter, Broker Buzz, is packed with the latest industry and product news, regulatory updates, forthcoming events and seminars.
The National Insurance Brokers Association (NIBA) CEO Dallas Booth has requested brokers to provide their feedback to an important survey on the impact of COVID-19 on small businesses across NSW.
He said, “NSW Treasury has confirmed that they would like us to send the survey to our members to complete.”
Booth has advised that the NSW Small Business Commission, part of NSW Treasury, is conducting this study. The NSW Government wants to understand the challenges small businesses are facing as a result of the pandemic, and the level of awareness of current assistance available to help them now and post-COVID-19.
Information collected from this survey will help the NSW Government explore future improvements for small business through policy, support measures and resources.
While survey responses are anonymous, the results will be shared with other Australian government agencies and stakeholders to make the case for positive change.
You can access the survey here.
NIBA has written to the NSW Minister for Finance, Damien Tudehope to discuss the difficulties brokers face when placing risks located in New South Wales with foreign insurers.
