HOW CAN THE REVISED BEE CODES WORK POSITIVELY FOR YOU?

The revised BEE Codes theyre implemented on 1 May 2015 and all businesses are now being measured in terms of these Codes. In addition, the new Sector Codes are in the process of being implemented, bringing all industries in South Africa onto the same page as far as BEE compliance is concerned. 

It is also important to emphasise that all businesses are affected in different ways by the Revised BEE codes, including:

  • Generic/Large Enterprises (R50 million plus turnover per annum),
  • Qualifying Small Enterprises (QSEs) (R10 million to R50 million turnover per annum) and
  • Exempted Micro Enterprises (EMEs) (up to R10 million turnover per annum).

Companies that have failed until now to react need to do so very soon or face the gloomy prospect of being out of business within a relatively short period of time.
 

Many owners and heads of businesses in South Africa understandably feel confused and threatened by the revised BEE Codes, which focus on ownership and control. These are complex issues, but they are here to advise you on how the revised BEE Codes can in fact work positively for you and your business and help your business grow.

As industry leaders, SERR SYNERGY’S variety of ownership solutions differentiates them from the rest. They will assist you in the appropriate structuring of elements of your business to achieve BEE compliance and strong scorecard ratings. 

OPTIONS AND OPPORTUNITIES FOR YOUR BUSINESS

With the revised BEE Codes, the way in which points are allocated and measured will, on average, reduce the current status of most entities by three levels.

Hotheyver, if you understand the revised BEE Codes as they do, they present a range of completely legal options and opportunities, including tax incentives, that they can draw on to maintain or improve your scorecard status and at the same time optimise opportunities for your business.

Where appropriate, they structure all costs associated with BEE, including company restructuring and skills development, in such a way that they become an investment and return for your business, with additional benefits and incentives for your staff, which, in turn, will improve employee retention and productivity.
