Make your money work harder


In an ideal world, cashflow would be predictable, but that’s rarely the case. A busy Christmas could be followed by a quiet January with catch-up payments, stock re-orders and the annual insurance bill. All that can make money hard to manage. Leading Edge helps members manage their cash more effectively.

Buy yourself some ‘me’ time


Nobody ever opened a store because they wanted to manage accounts, but that’s the reality of owning a small business. Leading Edge’s consolidated billing system will reconcile your purchases and credits to one centralised credit facility, which we pay on your behalf, buying you up to 60 days to pay, and preserving your good credit rating.

Take the pressure off


eXtend© - Powered by Procuret - allows you to break down invoices into instalments over 2, 3 or 4 months beyond your due date. Available for invoices up to $60,000 with a credit limit up to $150,000, eXtend takes the pressure off. Savings are important too. Using our network benefits, such as our EFTPOS merchant partnership with Commonwealth Bank, members save around $10,000 a year.

Discover the power of Elle


With hundreds of discounts available, Elle will save you up to $4,000 a year through everyday spending. There’s lower cost shipping services through FedEx, TNT and Toll, savings on insurance cover, discounted car rentals, travel and accommodation, discounted shop fit-outs, corporate fleet deals and discounted petrol. There are also deals with Woolworths, Coles, Rebel, Caltex, Uber Eats, and The Iconic.

Shout from the rooftops


You know your business, and we know how to market it. We can help with website design, social media, email newsletters and online campaign content. We also help in-store with fit-outs, signage, point of sale support, merchandising, uniforms, and stationery. If you want to do the marketing yourself, we have specialists to give you advice plus a simple-to-use marketing toolkit.

Be in your element online


Maybe you’ve long wanted to go online but didn’t know where to start. Or maybe you’ve already got a website, but you want it to work harder. Our e-commerce specialists work with members to design and build profitable online stores. Together we’ll create a beautiful design, a great user experience, and provide analytics to show you how things are tracking.

Connect with your peers


You’re not alone. “Your Place” is the digital hub for our Members, connecting you with hundreds of business owners just like you. Mine a wealth of community knowledge on our message boards, or post your own questions. It’s also a place to manage purchasing. Find supplier contact details, track supplier orders and review order history.

Make lifelong friendship


Connection to community is the foundation of small business. That’s why it’s important to get to know your peers. Leading Edge runs virtual events and conferences, and gives members access to tradeshows to motivate, educate and build relationships. You might learn about advancements in your industry, or make a lifelong friend whose advice will see you through hard times.

Industry-leading knowledge

Get advice on everything and anything a small business needs, including consumer law advice, consultation about tenancy and lease renewal, assistance with staff performance and redundancy issues, workplace compliance, access to lawyers, and discounted fees on the ARA’s retail training programs.
