Business Improvement District basics
Business Improvement Districts are not-for-profit organisations like Angel AIM which improve areas to trade and work in. They are run by businesses for business, with aims that translate directly into money-saving and benefits for local businesses.
These services are in addition to those already provided by the local authority and police. They are paid for by a levy of 1% of their rateable value on businesses whose premises are rated over £21,500. Smaller businesses are exempt.
