We also issue licences for other business purposes including taxis and professions which the Government states need to be licensed for safety reasons, such as beauty treatments and businesses involving the keeping of the animals.
If you are unsure whether you need a licence for your business, you can contact us or alternatively, for free, practical business advice and support provided by the UK Government, use the Business Link online tool.
