Introducing the new look Business Licence Finder

Having the right information about business licences and permits is important because they provide protection to businesses, business owners and employees; ensure particular business activities are allowed under Australian law; and enable trading without risk of fines or penalties.

Common business licences or permits relate to:

  • Running a business from certain premises such as a home or mobile van.
  • Playing or using music in a workplace, on a telephone on-hold music, or a website.
  • Doing certain types of work such as operating a food business, working from heights or removing hazardous waste.
