Local Business Regulations

Sign saying 'come in we're open' We have tried to make it as easy as possible to operate a successful business in Benalla Rural City with our one-stop-shop approach.

Various licences and permits are required when starting your own business. This is especially dependent on the industry. Some industries are more highly regulated than others to protect consumers and residents. More information about general licences and regulations can be found on the Business Victoria website

Whether you’re starting a business or looking to expand, contact the Business Development Coordinator to find out how Council can help ensure you’re on the right track.
