Any business who deals with consumers needs to be fully aware of their obligations under the consumer laws that operate in Australia. If your business sells goods or services within Australia, there are many complex obligations under the Australian Competition and Consumer Act that you need to adhere to. Failure to comply with these laws can have disastrous consequences for your business and personal life.
