What is a BID Company?

A BID (or Business Improvement District) is a business-led body formed with the sole objective to invest collectively in a defined commercial area with the aim of creating a brighter future for the business environment.

BID funds support activities aimed at improving the city centre environment; the activities are additional to and do not replace services currently carried out by the local authority and other statutory agencies. 

Where do we get our funding from?

Dunfermline Delivers is funded by two main income sources, bid levy income and Fife Council’s voluntary contribution. The BID levy is collected from the 400 or so commercial properties within the Dunfermline BID area. The BID levy for those businesses with a rateable value of over £10,000 is 1% and for businesses with a rateable value of £10,000 or less there is a fixed rate of £100.
