Savings Programme for Member Businesses

Building Security

Providing a safe, professional and cost-effective solution to protect all your business assets – physical and digital.

Services include: Man Guarding, Access Control, Risk Assessment, Intruder Alarm, Biometrics and CCTV.

Business Rates - Free Evaluation

Working with BNP Paribas Real Estate, members have access to a FREE business rates service. An initial analysis assesses opportunities to achieve savings, whether it be through the appeals process to the Valuation Office Agency, securing reliefs from the local councils or by obtaining refunds resulting from a historic audit of the rates bills received.

The Partnership sponsors the initial analysis for your business. If saving opportunities are identified, you have the option to contract BNP Paribas Real Estate directly in the pursuit of bringing these savings to fruition.

Energy and Water

Utility markets are volatile. Understanding them can be complex and time- consuming. Our energy team will take care of the process from start to end, covering all aspects of
the energy procurement process. We audit your current consumption and, working with national suppliers on the wholesale market, we use the buying power of the BID to secure the best contract at the best price. We track your renewal dates and ensure you don’t roll onto high variable tariffs and continue to monitor the market to ensure you have the right contract for your business.

Executive Cars, Taxi and Courier

Executive Cars: Our Business Travel service is high-quality, environmentally friendly and cost-effective. With new European standard, fuel-efficient engines,
you can sit back in your executive hybrid or MPV, and relax in the knowledge that you are saving up to 25% on standard fares, and helping to reduce emissions in Fitzrovia.

Taxi and Courier: We have pre-negotiated rates for motorcycle, van and cycle couriers across London, as well as private hire taxis. The courier service can take care of large, small, local, national and international deliveries.

Insurance

By bringing together and negotiating for businesses within the same sector, we can consolidate your needs and offer better premiums. We analyse the marketplace and bring you the best rates for your specific business needs.

IT Services and Security Solutions

Through our IT provider, we can offer expert IT services that support and protect your business.

Cost-effective solutions include: Infrastructure (Cloud computing, Hardware, Network design, SharePoint, Cloud software and support packages, Managed network support, Support for your IT); Consultancy (Strategy, Virtual IT manager, Business resilience and disaster recovery, Security, Office Moves, Application development, Office 365 migration, SharePoint consultancy).

Maintenance and Handy Man

Our perfect “one stop shop” solution for all your maintenance and handyman requirements. Providing professional, reliable and cost-effective tradesmen you can trust, so removing the burden and stress of finding the skills and people you need. We tackle all types and size of job, so you can focus on your day-to-day business.

Merchant Fees

Businesses are faced with an array of complex charges and industry coding, which can mean they could be unaware they are paying excessive fees. Using your specific merchant account reports, we review all rates offered across the marketplace to ensure you are not being overcharged for your merchant account. In addition to this, our team of industry experts ensure that all solutions offered are compliant with current legislation, guaranteeing you peace of mind for your business.

Office Supplies

The team will analyse all your stationery and office supply requirements and price match what you are already paying. By working together to reduce the number of different suppliers across the BID, we could cut the number of deliveries and ease congestion.

Pest Control

No city is immune to pest activity. Our pest control teams work discreetly to ensure this is always kept under control. We carry out a free appraisal of your site and produce a report showing all potential risks. We then create a service contract that ensures you have the correct level of cover for your business needs.

Safety and Testing

Your business and its premises must pass all legal testing to reach modern safety standards. To help your business meet these testing requirements, The Fitzrovia Partnership provide highly-qualified suppliers at the best market price, ensuring your business is protected and complies with Health and Safety regulations.

Whether it is merely a like-for-like service at the best market rate, or a completely new set-up for your business, our experts are here to make this simple and hassle free from start to finish.
