How to pay for licences and permits with a credit card

Gaining licences and permits are part of doing business. 

Whether it’s a liquor licence from your state government or a permit from your local council to have outdoor dining on the footpath, there are many types of licences and permits some businesses might need.

Local government planning permits are another common expense for any businesses that is doing any building or renovating, while businesses like conveyancers, real estate agenda and motor car traders usually all require licences from state government authorities.

Depending on your industry, the costs of all these licences and permits can add up.
