Opening a Business

Whether you have an idea for a new business, have bought a business or are looking to expand an existing one, Council has a dedicated Business Support Service to help you get started and grow. 

Before you start trading you may need to apply for relevant permits. As a first step, we encourage you to spend 3 minutes to complete the Business Permit Self-assessment Tool that will identify the permit/s you may need.  

Following your self-assessment, Council’s Business Support Service will contact you to discuss your ideas and requirements in more detail; Or if you need us first, please call on 1300 656 564 or
