Start or Expand a Business in Knox

Small and medium businesses are important to our community and local economy. Starting a new business can be a daunting process but there is support available to ensure you get the information you need.

Before you begin, it’s important that you familiarise yourself with Council permits and registrations required for your business. This way, you can apply for these at the same time, and progress your business.

Knox City Council has a Permit Support Team which is available to assist you along the way.
