The Australian Small Business and Family Enterprise Ombudsman (ASBFEO) website provides a range of information to assist small business owners from a diverse range of backgrounds to effectively manage their business.

To increase the ​accessibility of information for culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) readers the ASBFEO website has been translated for your convenience using translation software powered by Google Translate. Reasonable efforts have been made to provide an accurate translation; however, no automated translation is perfect nor is it intended to replace human translators.

Translations are provided as a service to users of the ASBFEO website and are provided "as is." No warranty of any kind, either expressed or implied, is made as to the accuracy, reliability, or correctness of any translations made from English into any other language. Some content (such as images, videos) may not be accurately translated due to the limitations of the translation software.

The official text is the English version of the website. Any discrepancies or differences created in the translation are not binding and have no legal effect for compliance or enforcement purposes. If any questions arise related to the accuracy of the information contained in the translated website, refer to the English version of the website which is the official version.
