Sector codes cause BEE joke – EconoBEE Newsletter – 19 July 2016

Sector codes cause BEE joke

The Amended codes were originally gazetted in 2013. They arguably are substantially more onerous than the previous codes, particularly for small business. However all businesses are finding that, unless they work twice as hard and spend twice as much, their BEE level will drop by 4 to 6 levels.

The Amended codes were issued in the interests of accelerating transformation, which has not succeeded as well as it should, or needed to.

In 2013 it was only the generic scorecard that was published. The QSE scorecard was subsequently published in May 2015. The biggest delay has been the sector codes.

In 2013 there were…




The PPPFA was gazetted on 15 June. We have already hosted 2 extremely successful events and due to the popular demand will be hosting more events. This event will be held on 29 July at 435 Rugby Avenue, Ferndale. We are also hosting the PPPFA in Cape Town on 11 August.

NB: Learn about the amended BEE codes in a full day conference in Cape Town on 10 August 2016.

EconoBEE is holding a briefing session/training course on 29 July 2016 JHB and and 11 August 2016 in Cape Town to explain these draft regulations which have significant differences to the 2011 regulations.

Implementing the Amended Codes

Changes to the BEE legislation will cause most businesses scores to drop substantially which will substantially limit their competitiveness in the market place. Alternative activities to earn points such as changing suppliers might require a radical directional change in business thinking and processes. Identifying points scoring activities while simultaneously eliminating weaknesses is essential to maintaining a satisfactory scorecard.

A good understanding of BEE is perhaps the single best method to cause long term improvements to your companies BEE status.

EconoBEE is proud to offer various courses designed to increase your understanding of BEE.
