Licensing

GOV.UK logo

GOV.UK

GOV.UK is a UK public sector information website, created by the Government Digital Service to provide a single point of access to HM Government services.

A number of business activities need a licence, from waste carriers to massage and special treatment premises, as well as aspects of business activity such as playing music or use of CCTV.

Licence finder

It is possible to find out whether you need a licence for the activities of your business. Whilst some licences have online applications, you will be advised to contact the local authority in some instances.

Better Business Regulation is a partnership between businesses, business support organisations and local regulatory services. Need help with regulations affecting your business and not sure where to start?
