In 2017, South Australian SME’s were as candid as ever in their responses. We thank them for taking the time to paint a picture of what it’s like to do business in SA, and what they think is needed to drive business forward in this state.

Energy pricing, cyber security, staffing, procurement and business transformation were all topics high on the agenda for respondents, and business sentiment remained steady to improving.

Overall, our state’s SME’s were optimistic and passionate about the potential of their own business – as well as SA businesses generally – to flourish. But they felt hamstrung by the burden of business costs and taxes, and the realities of disruption and cyber security.
