Online licensing applications
Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council is currently working on providing online licensing applications that will fulfil the requirements of the European Service Directive. Many of the licences that were previously available in a paper format are now available online.
Applicants are able to apply online for licenses through our website, submit additional information to support your application and pay fees electronically.
What is the EU Services Directive?
The directive makes it easier for service providers, particularly small and medium-sized enterprises, to offer their services to customers in other EU countries, whether establishing elsewhere in the EU or providing services remotely from the UK. To find out more about the EU Services Directive across Europe visit the EUGO Portal.
