Information about resolving business disputes now available in languages other than English

Victorian businesspeople can now access information in languages other than English about how to get help to resolve a business dispute or what they need to know before they sign a retail lease.

The Victorian Small Business Commission (VSBC) has released translated resources in Arabic, Simplified Chinese, Dari, Spanish, Turkish and Vietnamese.

The new online materials include:

  • an easy-to-read fact sheet about how the Victorian Small Business Commission can help resolve small business disputes
  • a retail leases information brochure with important information tenants need to know before signing
  • an animation on the VSBC’s services with translated voiceover and subtitles (in Arabic, Vietnamese and Simplified Chinese)

The Victorian Small Business Commission is a first step for small business disputes and saves small businesses time and money rather than going through the courts.

Small business people can either talk over the phone to find a solution to an issue or come together with an experienced mediator for a low cost.

Interpreters can be arranged at no cost.

The Victorian Small Business Commission is partnering with councils across Victoria, chambers of commerce and multicultural community groups to raise awareness of its resources and services.
