Business Enterprise Centre (BEC)
The Central NSW Business Enterprise Centre is a proud member of a National BEC Network - BEC Australia.
BEC Australia consists of over 99 members and associate members located around Australia. Each is an independent organisation which has chosen to take advantage of the benefits that membership to BEC Australia brings.
Business Enterprise Centres are community-based, not-for profit, non-political business assistance organisations that are owned and supported by locally managed incorporations. They are designed to facilitate the creation, retention and development of sustainable business enterprises, and foster local economic development. BECs, through their successful public/private partnerships with governments (federal, state and local), private enterprise and local communities across Australia, provide practical confidential business facilitation services.
Through BEC Australia, each BEC has access to the talents and resources of all BECs in the BEC Australia network, plus strategic partner resources to provide quality business assistance. These vital partnerships provide BEC clients with access to a wealth of professional services and programs, in addition to government programs offered.
BECs are well equipped to support the needs of small and micro businesses throughout their stages of development - from commencement, to operation and growth, through to succession planning and implementation.
The strength of the BEC network is that it provides independent confidential competent business counselling and other practical assistance to foster viable local businesses in order to boost sustainable economic development through the business sector. Your first two (2) business advisory sessions are 100% subsidised under government programs with subsequent visits 50% subsidied attracting a $55:00 fee. Some workshop are also provided free; however, there may be nominal charges for workbooks, software and further services. The BEC offers fee-for-service assistance to businesses and individuals.
