To register your food business you will need to complete a food business registration form and return it to the London Borough of Bromley or the local council where your business is based.

Registration is free. Once you have submitted food business registration form you can begin to trade.

Confirmation of registration

If you require written confirmation that your food business is registered after sending a registration form by post, you will be charged £25. However confirmation is free and immediate if you register online.
