Do I need a business licence?

Before your new business is ready to start operating you will need to ensure you have obtained all the required licences and approvals. These will vary depending on the industry you are operating in as well as the structure of your business.  Alongside these you should be aware of Australian consumer law and guidelines for the employment of staff.

The Australian Business Licence and Information Service (ABLIS) can provide you with the information you need about these requirements. You can visit their website here:  https://ablis.business.gov.au/
