Bath BID is delighted to announce a working partnership with Meercat Associates, who operate the National BID buying group.

We are aware of the rising costs of running a business and are always searching for new ways to help you and your business reduce these costs. The Suez trade waste offer has proved beneficial for Bath BID levy payers and we have recently introduced Jelf for insurance. Now we are partnering with Meercat, the specialists in identifying where individual businesses can make savings. They will work with you to review your business costs (in key areas such as utilities and telecoms) and present you with a review, illustrating where you may be able to reduce your costs. If you choose to save your business money by moving to a new supplier, Meercat Associates can work with you to make the switch as simple as possible, managing your contracts on your behalf.

This is a FREE service to all Bath BID members. There are no additional costs or commissions payable; your BID levy funds this service (along with many other services and projects delivered by Bath BID).

Meercat work exclusively with Business Improvement Districts (BIDs) across the UK, such as Bath BID, to harness the collective buying power of businesses. Typically a business saves 34% with average member savings of £622.  Meercat will help businesses make savings on:

  • energy
  • merchant fees
  • testing & safety
  • stationery & print
  • water
  • telecoms
  • pest control
  • and other areas

To start saving all you need to do is to send Meercat a copy of a single bill for each service. Email your bills to or call 01444 416 529 to speak to the savings team.
