Register a food business

If you own or have taken over a food business in Leeds (including a temporary or street trading stall), it is a legal requirement to register your business with the council at least 28 days before opening or taking ownership.

Registration is free of charge. The details will be entered onto our register and certain details, such as type of business, address and telephone number, will be available for public inspection. Other information provided will not be publicly available.

Once you have registered, you will need to notify us if there is a change of ownership or change in the nature of the business.

In addition to registration, your food business may also require approval. Please see Related Pages.
