We are extremely pleased that we achieved over a 99% collection rate of BID Levy in our first year, allowing us to budget for all the exciting projects we set out to achieve. April 1st 2019 sees the start of a new financial year and we are confident of achieving similar levels of collection. We would like to take this opportunity to remind BID members that this is a mandatory levy after it was voted in February 2018 and the BID is in situ for a five-year term. Under BID legislation, the local authority (Chelmsford City Council) are required to collect the levy on our behalf and then send on to us, so the invoice will be sent from CCC. We will also be sending out a Year One Summary with the invoices. Thank you all very much in advance.
