Improve your BEE scorecard. We offer a simple and hassle free way to claim your Enterprise Development points.
The Clothing Bank is one of the best examples of a successful Enterprise Development initiative in South Africa and is particularly well placed to support the transformation agenda. As a fully compliant Empowerdex-certified Third Party Enterprise Development Service Provider, The Clothing Bank offers a meaningful number of points on the B-BBEE scorecard under the old and new codes. Beneficiaries are 100% black South African women (previously unemployed mothers) with up to 35% being youth, and all qualify as Exempt Micro Enterprises (EMEs).
Under the current Generic Codes, 100% of Socio- economic Development (SED) qualifies as all of our beneficiaries are black South African citizens, and 125% of Enterprise Development (ED) qualifies as the black- owned enterprises are all EMEs.
Compliance with the new Codes of Good Practice is perceived to be much harder than with the current codes as the focus of Socio-economic Development (SED) has shifted towards projects that facilitate income generating activities for their beneficiaries. Changes to Enterprise Development (ED) criteria mean that ED beneficiaries will need to be a minimum of 51% black-owned EMEs and QSEs.
With the amended scorecard, The Clothing Bank can offer an attractive menu of points under:
