Find licences, registrations and permits your business needs

The Australian Business Licence and Information Service (ABLIS) helps you find everything you need to run your business:

  • licences, permits and approvals you may need for your business activity
  • name, address and phone number of the issuing departments or agencies
  • fee and duration of each licence
  • forms to be completed.


There are two ways to obtain information:

  1. overview - for basic details on licences you may need
  2. report - once you know how you will operate your business, where it will be based, and you're ready for licences and application forms.
