business cost saving scheme

In November 2017, we launched a new Cost Saving Scheme, that uses the collective buying power of BID levy payers across the country to help reduce costs for Aberystwyth's businesses.

How it works

We work in partnership with Meerkat Associates, who manage the whole from beginning to end on behalf of businesses, securing best prices and finding the most appropriate service by managing contracts when they are up for renewal and switching businesses to the right deal. The service is FREE to all BID levy payers.

Case Study - TJ Davies


One business that has benefited from our cost saving scheme is the jewellers, TJ Davies & Son. They have already saved a considerable sum on their energy bills and are hoping for more savings on their merchant fees.

“We are delighted with the service” said Mr Davies. “Not only have we recuperated our levy money, and more, we also have the peace of mind that we no longer have to take calls from other suppliers. I would definitely encourage all levy payers to take up this opportunity, it was so straight forward, and Meerkat staff were so friendly and helpful. We were so impressed, that we have asked them to look in to our merchant fees, so we are hoping to save even more in the coming weeks!”.
