Please see correspondence below.
Please also note that this process is only necessary for firms with a turnover of more than R2,5m.
Any firm with an annual total turnover of less than R2,5 million are classified as Exempted Micro Enterprises. These firms only have to complete an Affidavit and have it signed by a Commissioner of Oaths. Once the Affidavit has been stamped by a Commissioner of Oaths, the Affidavit serves as a Level 4 B-BBEE certificate as no other verification is required. The Affidavit can be downloaded from Rebosa’s website by accessing the link below.
