Licences from your local council
Local councils are responsible for licensing and registering certain types of business activities. They can tell you whether you need a licence, help you apply for one and tell you how long the process will take.
Check with your local council about licenses for business and events such as:
alcohol – for premises and individuals selling or authorising the sale of alcohol
food safety licences
taxis and private hire cars
private markets where more than one seller is selling goods to the public
