Transfer your business licence to someone else

What you need to know
What you need to know

If you are taking over an existing business:

  • Your new business must be the same type of business as the existing business; for example, an existing restaurant's business licence can only be transferred to a new restaurant
  • The business licence can only be transferred once per calendar year

 

 You cannot transfer over a home-based business licence.
