Small businesses struggling to cope with the Covid-19 crisis can access assistance through the My Business Health web portal.

Australian Small Business and Family Enterprise Ombudsman Kate Carnell says the portal has been re-designed to walk small business owners and sole traders through  practical steps to keep their businesses afloat.

“Small businesses are under enormous pressure right now, with many forced to close their doors and others unsure how they will survive the coming months,” Ms Carnell said.

In addition to providing SMEs and sole traders with a simple guide to what assistance is available to them, My Business Health also links to Beyond Blue’s Coronavirus Mental Wellbeing Support Service.
