Did you know you can find all the licences and permits you need to run your business in one simple search?

If not, it’s time to start using the Australian Business Licence and Information Service (ABLIS).

What is ABLIS?


ABLIS is an online search tool that tells you what licences, registrations and permits you need to run your business.

Whether you’re starting your business, expanding to a different location or just want to ensure you’re compliant, ABLIS can help you spend more time running your business and less time tracking down compliance requirements.

What happens when I search ABLIS?


When you start searching on ABLIS:

  1. You’ll be guided through a short survey with questions about your business type, industry and locations.
  2. You receive a tailored report with all the licence and permit requirements relevant to your business, including information from local, state and federal governments.
  3. You’ll also receive information on licence fees, how to apply, periods of cover and renewals.

To check something specific, you can also use the search to look up a particular licence or piece of compliance.
