The characteristics of the small business sector in Australia are diverse. The Australian Bureau of Statistics has estimated that at least 96% of all Australian non-agricultural private businesses are small businesses, in that they have fewer than 20 employees. Data from the National Centre for Vocational Education and Research (NCVER) indicate the majority of small business owners / managers have undertaken some form of tertiary education. However, the NCVER report also notes that the lack of management expertise is the most important factor in the failure of small businesses.
