Lichfield BID levy

What if I don't want to pay?

A ballot was carried out in July 2015 and all businesses in the BID area were given the opportunity to vote for or against the BID levy.

The result of the ballot was a 'yes' vote, therefore all businesses liable for the levy are required to pay.

It is hoped that all businesses will see the benefits of contributing to the BID.

In the event of non-payment, on behalf of the BID operating company (Lichfield BID Limited), the council will recover any sums due in line with normal recovery processes.

This may mean that defaulters receive a reminder, final notice and may face ultimately court proceedings.

However, the council will liaise with the Lichfield BID to discuss such cases and the Lichfield BID will encourage payment for the benefit of all.
