WAKEFIELD businesses could be losing out to the tune of £600 - cash that could help them grow.

Rishi Sood is MD of Meercats Associates Limited which has teamed up with the BID to help businesses cut their bills.

In November, he and his team visited more than 40 levy payers in WF1 to audit their existing suppliers of utility, telecoms and merchant services bills.

“We had a lot of interest with businesses highlighting worries about business rates and the levy charge. They were determined to cut their overheads but those businesses could be missing out because they haven’t provided us with the information we need to process their applications,” he said.

Meercats Associates collates business costs and then searches for better value tariffs across key cost areas.

“The irony is our service commonly saves an independent business the cost of the levy charge and sometimes even their business rates,” he added.

Many small businesses risk finding themselves out of contract and finding their bills rolled into a high cost out of contract rate.

“We are back in Wakefield to talk to more independent businesses on Thursday January 4 and I would urge any business keen to reduce their overheads to get in touch with us now."

Meercat Associates will be back in town in Febuary and March. Keep checking back for confirmation of these dates.
