Starting a Business

If you are planning to start a business within the City of Whitehorse, it is important to consider how your business meets government regulations and ensure it is run in a manner that is safe and legally compliant. 

Business owners are encouraged to:

  • Check if any permits are required 
  • Discuss plans with Whitehorse City Council officers prior to lodging a permit application
  • Provide Whitehorse City Council with necessary documents and information supporting any permit/licence application

Additional resources and information for those wanting to start a business can be found on the Wbiz website. This website is managed by Whitehorse City Council's Investment and Economic Development Unit, who are here to help initiate and deliver business support programs.
