The Department does not collect this information, as businesses within the BID area decide on the amount of the levy and vote in a ballot on whether the scheme should go ahead. The size and calculation of the BID levy varies widely between BIDs. The levy is collected by the billing authority and held in a separate BIDs Revenue Account where it is ring-fenced and can only be used for the BID.
