The Business Licence Finder helps you find the licences and registrations your business needs to operate in Western Australia.
A database of more than 9,500 federal, state and local government licences is searched to create your report, which will be tailored to the information you provide. Any relevant codes of practice will also be included.
The term "business licence" refers to any form of government regulation, registration, permit or approval which applies to a business. A licence gives you authorisation to carry on an activity or an occupation.
A code of practice is a document that, in some circumstances, has the force of law. They are a set of guidelines (rules) and regulations to be followed by members of some trades/occupations and organisations.
Follow the easy steps to find the licences and codes of practice your business requires.
