Lichfield BID levy

What if my circumstances change?

If your rateable value reduces because of an appeal, this will be taken into full consideration when calculating the levy for current and future years. However, reductions or increases in rateable value will only apply from 1 October following the amendment. To find out more, contact our customer services team on 01543 308000 (Monday - Friday, 9am - 5.15pm).

If you vacate your property and it is immediately taken over by another tenant, then they will be liable for the BID bill from the date of transfer. If you vacate the property and are still the legal owner, or tenant, you will still need to pay your BID levy.

There’s no reduction for empty properties, so either the tenant or the property owner will still be liable.
