Important new arrangements for your levy bills


Islington Council, which collects Angel Islington BID levy, has informed the BID of the following important information.

Your 2023/24 Angel Islington BID levy bill has been adjusted to take into account a 2023 revaluation of properties, which has led to a change in rateable values for most commercial properties. For this reason, all BID members will be sent another bill in the coming weeks with their new liability for 2023/4. The revaluation in most cases means small changes to levy liabilities.

There are three possible eventualities:

If you have paid and now have an outstanding debt
This should be paid as normal through Islington Council. The back of the bill shows the method of payment – please do not pay your levy into the same account as you pay Business Rates, as these accounts are separate. If you have outstanding levy owed from previous years, this is now being collected in full. Previous years’ debts are printed in the box at the foot of the invoice.

If you have paid and have a credit on your account
You can apply to receive a refund or choose to apply a credit to your 2024/5 levy bill. If you don’t inform the Council which option you would prefer, the credit will be automatically applied to your 2024/25 bill.

If you have not paid your bill yet
Your previous invoice this year is now void. When you receive your new invoice, please pay this as normal, using the account information on the reverse side of the invoice. If you have outstanding levy owed from previous years, this is due in full. Previous years’ debts are printed in the box at the foot of the invoice.

If you have any questions about your bill, these can be directed to businessrates@islington.gov.uk.
