Socio-Economic Development (SED) is about facilitating sustainable access into the economy for black people. In order to gain maximum points in SED, the company has to spend 1% of NPAT.

SED contributions can be monetary or non-monetary. Non-monetary contributions should be converted to a financial value in order to claim points.

The full value of SED contributions made to beneficiaries is recognized if at least 75% of the value directly benefits black people. If not, the value of the contribution will be multiplied by the percentage that benefits black people only.


A record of the following must be kept as they are required during verification:

  • date of contribution,
  • information on the beneficiary entity proving that 75% or more beneficiaries are black,
  • quantifiable non-monetary contributions to beneficiaries,
  • thank you letter in acknowledgement of assistance.
