Starting a Business & Business Permits

If you’re considering opening a new, or buying an existing business in Quairading, we’re here to help.

Whether you are beginning a home business, or setting up in a shopfront or other commercial premises, there are a number of considerations to take into account.

The Shire of Quairading is a vibrant and progressive rural council, rich in history and a strong community spirit, offering opportunities for local and large businesses.

Quairading is located in the Wheatbelt of Western Australia, situated on the York-Quairading Rd, 1.5 hours from metropolitan Perth. The Shire is alive with business opportunities, on a busy freight corridor, minutes from mining.

The largest industry in Quairading, both in economic output and employment, is the agriculture sector, however, other established and immerging industries such as manufacturing and tourism are significantly important to the Shire as additional economic support, particularly in times of drought.

Through the Local Government Act, Quairading Shire Council is responsible for many local laws and activities insuring local business are abiding by State and Federal laws. It is important to discuss your business plans with Council who can provide advice and assistance in relation to aspects such as:

• Planning zones and permits
• Building permits
• Food and Environmental health and safety
• Licencing
• Signage and Street Furniture

Importantly we can help ensure all things are covered and can highlight any potential issues early in your business planning process. It is vitally important to discuss your business plans with Council at the earliest opportunity.
