Previously known as LicenceOne, it has now been rebranded as GoBusiness Licensing and enhanced with the new Guided Journey feature. This is designed to walk beginners through the licensing process, step by step, and sets up a personalised dashboard to suit each businessc specific needs. This feature is currently only available for the food & beverage industry. For more experienced users, GoBusiness Licensing is just as user-friendly and intuitive with the Self-Service feature.

GoBusiness Licensing is a collaborative effort between various government agencies to make the licensing experience simpler, better and faster across all industries in the long term, starting with food & beverage businesses.
