After listening to feedback from businesses, FOR Cardiff (formerly Cardiff BID) are delighted to announce that we have responded by agreeing a new contract with Cardiff-based radio experts M.R.S. Communications. Commencing in January 2018 businesses will be provided with a secure radio system which will be FREE for the first 6 months and then just £194 plus VAT for the next 6 months. In year 2 and onwards the cost will be £389 plus VAT and held at this price until 2021. There is also a free earpiece for businesses involved in the night time economy.

From our experience of hiring radios for our Street Ambassadors this year, this is a potential saving in excess of £200 per radio per year and over £400 compared with M.R.S.’s year one charge. As a result, we are very confident this represents excellent value for money, demonstrates our commitment to reducing your business overheads, whilst ensuring that radios are not cost prohibitive to businesses. Please remember that you can claim the VAT back on radio hire if you are registered.
