PPSA and the Hire and Rental Industry

Hire businesses across Australia are at risk under the Personal Properties Securities Act. The HRIA has been working with its legal team for the past 18 months to have this redressed. In recent months our government and media relations activity has heightened with key journalists running the story.

We’ve also been canvassing relevant politicians and ask that you contact your own local MP. We’re encouraging you to contact your local pollie and let them know how this unfair legislation is impacting businesses in their electorate.

See the basics of a letter we’ve sent to every Federal MP below.  It provides the messages and information necessary to include in your own correspondence.
Please let us know how you go. You can contact the National Office on 02 9998 2255.
