We are responsible for the issue of a wide variety of licences and permits ensuring that the minimum standards of public safety and public protection are met.
We monitor and process applications and provide help and guidance on the kind of licence or permission you may need. Most applications involve the payment of an administration fee.
UK Welcomes is a free business advice and support service provided by the UK Government. You can apply for the licences you need to do business in the UK via the Business Link UK Welcomes website
