Here is my best explanation:

'resolve differences' is the definition.

'reconcile' can be an answer for 'resolve' (thesaurus). I am not sure about the 'differences' bit.

'renew licence or' is the subsidiary indication.

'renew' indicates an anagram.

'licence'+'or'='licenceor'

'licenceor' is an anagram of 'reconcile'.

This clue was last seen in The Independent

(Other definitions for reconcile that I've seen before include "square", "Make up, make peace", "Be on friendly terms again", "Settle (a quarrel)", "Square", "accommodate", "Puccini opera", "Appease", "Renew friendship" and "Pacify".)
