Market Entry

From making an initial application, to changing ownership to distance selling, you can now submit, track and view your application online.​ Increased visibility enables you to track the progress of your application and online validation highlights any missing information, which is likely to reduce the risk of error from manual re-entry. ​

The online system is intuitive and guides you through the correct application process, whether you are a Body Corporate adding additional premises or making a change to director(s), or a Sole Trader setting up new premises or making a change to current service provision. Reduce your carbon footprint by submitting your application electronically, as there is no need for paper forms or cheques to be submitted. Applicants can now pay online using BACS.
