Welcome to the National Retail Association

The National Retail Association (NRA) is Australia's largest and most representative retail industry organisation. For almost 100 years, the NRA has represented the interests of the retail, fast food and broader service sector, delivering critical information and advice to thousands of businesses nationally - from the smallest corner store, to the majority of Australia's largest retail chains and franchise groups.

The NRA's services are delivered by a team of highly trained and well qualified people, in-house with decades of retail-specific knowledge and experience. Because the NRA is a not for profit association, we can deliver professional services at a much lower cost than other providers.

Ten reasons why Australian businesses join NRA


To receive advice on performance management issues and guidance around termination processes


To help you to fully understand your obligations in terms of employee remuneration and conditions of employment


To receive guidance and direction around preventative measures that minimise the prospects of workplace harassment, bullying or discriminatory behaviour


To receive access to industry forums in areas such as industrial relations, employment and training, loss prevention, workplace safety, technical standards and consumer law, and tenancy and leasing


To receive accurate and up to date information on allowable retail shop trading hours


To receive advice and guidance around enterprise bargaining and whether business efficiencies can be achieved through the implementation of enterprise agreements


To help you to understand your obligations under the Australian Consumer Law and to receive advice on how to respond when the regulator issues breach notices or foreshadows other action


To inform you on your rights as a tenant, and to receive practical advice around lease renewals and how lease renegotiations should be approached


To represent your interests when governments foreshadow an intention to introduce new legislation which will increase the cost of doing business or make it much more difficult for your business to operate efficiently


To help you to unite with other retailers and employers to ensure all levels of government understand the challenges facing business and respond accordingly
