Small businesses are at the heart of the Ipswich economy and account for a large majority of registered businesses in the region. There are approximately 10,000 businesses that are registered in Ipswich, and a massive 6,000 of these are sole operators (micro-businesses), with many more classified as small businesses (less than 20 staff).

In October 2020 Ipswich City Council became the first council in Queensland to sign on as a Small Business Friendly Council.

The signing of the Small Business Friendly Council charter reinforces the commitment of council to supporting your Ipswich small business. Check out how we can help:
