MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA (3 July 2023) Zeller, the Australian fintech reimagining business banking, has unveiled new findings from the first Zeller Small Business Resilience Report. The report, collated from the responses from over 600 Australian small businesses, reveals insights into how business owners are impacted by, and are responding to, challenging economic conditions.
The report sheds light on the adverse impacts of declining consumer spending and escalating supply costs and provides insights into the state of Australian small businesses. With a staggering 85% of business owners currently seeking cost-cutting measures, the data underscores the urgent need for innovative solutions to support the growth of small businesses.
Key data from the report include:
Joshua McNicol, Zeller Director of Growth, commented, "The Zeller Small Business Resilience Report reveals the impact a challenging economic environment is having on small business owners — but we’re encouraged to see adversity breeding opportunity. Australian small business owners demonstrate a rare breed of determination in adapting and identifying solutions to sustain their businesses through tough times. Through Zeller’s financial solutions, we’re arming business owners with real-time data from their business payments and spending to make smarter decisions to manage their business through the crunch.”
Small business owners featured within the Zeller report shared strategies they were deploying to mitigate the impact of rising costs, without compromising the quality of their products or services. Access to smarter financial tools and technology offered by Zeller are helping business owners to better understand their cash flow and financial position.
“We look at our Zeller Dashboard frequently to gain a real-time snapshot of all of the funds coming into our business from EFTPOS, and going out through expenses and spending. We use this information to forecast and measure our success according to our budget – having this information in one place means we can always keep track of business performance and react to changes,” commented Zeller customer Malcolm McCullough, owner of Bill’s Farm in Queen Victoria Market, Melbourne.
