Licence finder

The Licence finder is a tool that can help you find the right licences that you need for your business. It covers activities which require you to engage with a Northern Ireland or UK-wide regulator. You can create a personalised list of requirements, and in many cases you can apply online for your business licence.
 
It is important to check what responsibilities you have working in a particular business sector. If you operate a regulated business activity without obtaining necessary licences, you could be fined or face a penalty.
