The Cost of BEE Compliance – EconoBEE Newsletter – 14 July 2010

EconoBEE - BEE Points = Business

We will be successful!

Now that the World Cup is over many South Africans feel elated at the tremendous success of the entire event. Undoubtedly one of the most significant benefits to South Africa was nation building – stand united. This is most certainly the first large scale unification and ultimately transformation that South Africa has ever participated in and, well simply it was an outstanding success.

I found this particularly interesting. I am and have been for a long time a passionate supporter of South Africa and transformation in general. The B-BBEE Codes of Good Practice is a wonderful piece of legislation which brings real, genuine transformation to all.

Ke Nako – It’s time to be successful.

The Cost of BEE Compliance

Many people ask us “what is the cost of becoming B-BBEE compliant”. It is a bit like asking “How much does giving your children a good education cost?” Most people will agree that a good education is an investment in your children’s future and not a cost at all.

We can identify various types of costs in becoming BEE compliant. Costs depend on the size of business, the type of business and the level of compliance required.

There are two key costs; direct costs and indirect costs:

Direct Costs:
1) The cost of a consultant
2) The cost of obtaining your verified certificate
3) Direct costs in earning points
4) The cost in time and effort in carrying out the activities needed to earn points

BEE Scorecard vs Verified BEE Certificate

This is one of the most confusing aspects of BEE. “What is the difference between a BEE scorecard and a Verified BEE certificate”?

Simply, a BEE scorecard is a calculation of how many points you have earned. A Verified BEE certificate is a confirmation that the points you have earned have been verified.

Your customer wants a verified BEE certificate from you, but before you can give that to them you must have a scorecard in place so that you can earn enough points to satisfy them.

How does one go about getting a verified certificate?

In summary
1) Obtain a BEE scorecard reflecting points earned
2) Call in a verification agency to verify that the points you have earned are correctly stated and accurately calculated.
