About Business Connect

Business Connect is a new digital platform that will allow businesses to apply for things like licences and permits from different government agencies in one place.

Businesses tell us that they spend a lot of time and effort trying to deal with government just so they can make sure their compliance boxes are ticked.

The Business Connect platform will streamline things for businesses by helping them to apply for, manage and track licences and permits. We’ll make it easier by giving businesses a more consistent experience, the ability to re-use the information they’ve stored in their profile and a place to keep track of all the things they’ve applied for on Business Connect.
