Please say hello if you're in Brisbane, maybe we could organise a coffee morning or something some time to network?

Not in Brisbane, but think this is a great question that should be posted around to get people together from other states too.

New member to SavvySme here, and based in Brisbane North.

Books are Gone is a faith based business that provides a professional  bookkeeping service to small business in the Pine Rivers district and beyond.  As a professional bookkeeping practice our goal is to enable you to spend more time growing your business and cash flow by removing the burdens associated with bookkeeping.

I would always take figures produced by the ABS as a starting point and then do your own research.  I know from previous experience that the figures given to the ABS are not reliable, making their summary of them also unreliable.  But as John has indicated it is a good resource if you use it appropraitely.

Love to gettogether with other SAVVYsme's in Brisbane

This may be a bit off topic but The Australian Bureau of Statistics used to publish (in 2006) a breakdown of SME's by postcode. In my line of business as a Jim's Bookkeeping Franchisor it is important to be able to provide as accurate a picture of business concentrations by location as possible and the following is the most current information I could get. You may have to copy into an Excel worksheet and do a Filter on location but having access to this sort of data is very handy.
