Inside Business was an Australian television program broadcast on ABC1. Making its debut on 4 August 2002, it presented analysis of the financial world, including the Australian sharemarket, business activities and the broader economy. The program aired at 9:30 am on Sunday mornings following Insiders, and was hosted by Alan Kohler. He also conducted interviews with members of the business community, profiled emerging businesses and entrepreneurs, and often presented his own commentary at the end of the program.

The show was criticised by fellow ABC network program Media Watch for providing uncritical promotion of a floral company on its profile segment, a claim which the program denied.[1] The issue is particularly pertinent as the ABC network carries no advertising. The show was also repeated on weekday mornings at 8:00 am on ABC2

The show was cancelled by the ABC as from the end of the 2013 season, after Kohler announced his retirement from the show due to his wish to lessen his workload.[2]
