Seven reasons why you should consider buying local

Seven reasons why you should consider buying local

Here are seven reasons why you should buy from an Australian Owned & Operated Business:
1. You will keep money in the local economy. Research shows that for every $100 spent in a locally owned business more than $83 is likely to stay here versus less than $29 when spent with a foreign owned business
2. You will keep profits and taxes in the Australian economy. How often do you hear of profits going offshore and multi-nationals paying almost no tax? Profits retained in our economy help balance the budget and provide much needed services that benefit Australians from all walks of life
3. You will help maintain a local manufacturing base and help retain much needed skills in Australia. Trade skills are like riding a bike, you never forget. Can we as a nation afford not to teach trade skills to our kids and grandkids? If not, those skills will be lost forever; can you imagine a whole generation that doesn’t know how to ride a bike? That could happen to our trade skills
4. You’ll be taking advantage of our home grown expertise. Locally owned business have a vested interest in knowing how best to serve you. So why not take advantage of knowing that the owner of the business you buy from is a fellow Australian and will be more than likely to have your best interests at heart
5. You will help retain & create Australians jobs. Local companies are better at creating higher paying jobs for local people. For example, every direct job in manufacturing leads to another 4.3 jobs in the local economy.
6. You will be buying products built to Australian Safety, Quality and Environmental standards. Can you be sure that the product you buy will be made to the standards that you expect?
7. You’ll be buying value for money. Australian made products are something we can all be proud of, products built up to a standard, not down to a price.
What excuse will you use for not buying Australian made goods?
Buying from an Australian Owned & Operated Company makes sense. Before every purchase, take a few minutes to consider where your money will go, make a conscious decision to support your local business owner.
