BID Leicester Voluntary Contribution Scheme


Opting in to the BID Leicester voluntary contribution scheme will give your business access to the benefits of being a BID Leicester levy-payer.

Voluntary contributors within the BID Leicester area will contribute a fixed amount of £250 per year for the duration of the BID term. Businesses outside the area can also join, with their levy being calculated according to their rateable value – see here for information on how BID levy is calculated.

The benefits of being part of the BID Leicester voluntary contribution scheme are potentially worth thousands of pounds to your business:

  • The award winning LoyalFree digital loyalty app (worth £480 a year)
  • Savings Advisory Service, which has already seen businesses make substantial savings that outweigh their levy payment
  • Street Ambassador Service, which has already proven invaluable to businesses and the public in the city centre
  • Footfall tracking data reports to help you understand footfall trends in the city and make smarter businesses decisions (from spring 2019)
  • Independent businesses can benefit from being part of our Independent Leicester promotional campaign
  • All employees of BID levy-paying businesses will benefit from our Employee Rewards Scheme being developed in 2019
  • Place marketing benefits including increased footfall and raised profile of the city as a result of BID projects and marketing campaigns.
  • The opportunity to shape BID spend to help improve Leicester city centre
  • Direct involvement in BID Leicester campaigns and marketing materials, such as the opportunity to feature your business and events as BID Spotlight in the Cool as Leicester e-newsletter
  • Opportunities to get involved with BID projects and events, such as Brew Beat festival or Leicester Restaurant Week 

For more detail on these benefits, see our BID Projects webpage. You can also download our brochure for more information on joining the Voluntary Contribution Scheme.
