The Cut Red Tape Project at the Institute of Public Affairs aims to explain Australia’s red tape problem and why we must cut red tape today.

Every year businesses spend thousands of hours complying with unnecessary reports, confusing permits, and needless licenses.
Every minute employees spend pandering to red tape requirements is a minute those employees are not dedicating to their businesses and economic activity.
Every year red tape costs the Australian economy $176 billion. To unleash prosperity, governments need to reduce the red tape burden on businesses and entrepreneurs.
