Business Registration Process


Introducing the Business Concierge and MariBusiness

Our Business Concierge is your point of contact within Council and will guide and assist you through the new business registration application processes from the beginning, right to the very end.

MariBusiness is our new online tool for you to answer a few questions about your business and, based on your responses, MariBusiness will identify all the areas across Council that will need input into your business registration.

Together, our Business Concierge and MariBusiness will get your application started by inviting you and our specialist staff to meet and discuss your business proposal in detail. This meeting is known as the new business pre-application meeting. So if you are ready, let's get started!
