Cape Town Workshop - Understanding the codes - The way to become BEE Compliant
As the codes come closer to being gazetted - and therefore
come into law, it becomes more important to understand how it affects
your business. The gazetting and applying of BEE will make it easier
for business - contrary to many people's expectations. Transformation
and BEE in companies can open many new opportunities - but it needs to
be explained in an unemotional and business-like manner. This is how our
half-day BEE workshops work!
On all workshops we hand out detailed course material, which
has been described as "excellent" by delegates to previous workshops. We will also have copies of EconoBEE Scorecard available for purchase.
Status of the codes:
Cabinet approved the codes in December 2006. We are waiting for them to be gazetted - to be given the force of law. What that really means is we will finally have consistency in applying BEE. At the moment many companies are applying BEE based on their own interpretation of the codes - and probably asking you questions about your BEE status that are no longer relevant.
As soon as possible after gazetting they will be placed on our website for your information, and we will add clarity. We will then be holding a full day workshop analysing the codes in detail. This will be a workshop run in association with Cathy Bryant Attorneys, our colleague who is a specialist in tax, ownership structures and corporate financial structures as they relate to BEE.
