A simplistic approach to BEE gives you a good score, and simple data management can mean the difference between a good BEE score, or missing a crucial level.

Our approach to B-BBEE compliance works on a proven strategy that has worked for hundreds of South African businesses. In order to maximise the benefits to your business, we start with a thorough analysis of your current practices and go for the “low hanging fruit” first, as they say. This means that we utilise your current systems, transactions, and data to see where you are and how it can already be used to best get there. We then fill in the gaps with strategic optimisation of your current systems and practices. Throughout this process, we use reliable verification software to monitor your real-time compliance and we strategise with you and your team to make the changes needed to achieve the level you need.


We create a simulated Scorecard with basic data from your business, starting with what you have and how that can be optimised


We optimise your existing processes and transactions to maximise the benefit to be gained from current practices, then fill the gaps


We have a reliable online calculator in partnership with VerTrax to constantly monitor the progress of implementations

Our simplistic and effective BEE process will typically include these steps:

We build executive commitment and assist Directors to understand the process

We create a BEE Committee with key stakeholders responsible for each element

A key person is assigned in the organisation, responsible for data collation

We ensure we understand the executive direction for BEE activity for each element

The stakeholders of each element start implementing activities set by executives

We work with each element's stakeholders to get the most advantage from the element

All transactions are identified and interpreted for their BEE merit

Verification takes place with a verification agency and a BEE certificate is issued

A monitoring mechanism is put in place to enable progress reporting on each element

A preliminary scorecard is generated to prepare for an official rating
