The Australian Small Business and Family Enterprise Ombudsman (ASBFEO) supports small businesses and family enterprises through two main functions: advocacy and assistance.

The Assistance function provides help and support for small business owners that have a problem. This could be a problem with another business, a financial institution or government agencies.

The Advocacy function gives ASBFEO the capacity to make inquiries, either self-generated or as requested by the Minister for Employment, Skills, Small and Family Business on behalf of the Government.
