Company Membership

Become a Company Member

All businesses who occupy a property in the BID area with a rateable value of £40,000+ pay the mandatory BID levy and are therefore members of the BID.

The BID is being delivered by Sheffield City Centre BID Limited (the “Company”). We are a company limited by guarantee and do not have shareholders. Instead we have “company members”. These are BID members (levy payers) who wish to subscribe to our Memorandum and Articles of Association and be entitled to vote on ordinary or special resolutions at general or annual general meetings.

Therefore, BID members (levy payers) can apply to be Company Members.  Company membership is open and free to all BID members at any time.

What it means to be a Company Member

Being a company member will enable you to influence how the Sheffield BID invests the money it receives from businesses in the BID area. Your representative will be entitled to vote on resolutions presented at annual general meetings (and any other members’ meetings that may be held). You may appoint a proxy to vote on your behalf if the appointed representative is unable to attend one of the meetings.

As a company member, your representative will be entitled to stand for election to the Board (one third of which will rotate on a bi-annual basis) thereby becoming a director of the Company.

The Company is a private company limited by guarantee. Company members guarantee that in the event that the Company becomes insolvent, the company members will contribute towards the repayment of creditors. If you opt to become a member of the Company, your liability under the guarantee will be limited to maximum of £1.00.
