Met al hierdie wat bykom, saam die meer as 80% wat reeds swart is, is dit slegs die swart elite wat baat by swart bemagtiging en regstellende aksies vir die afgelope 25 jaar. Voeg daarby die 7.5 miljoen swartes wat reeds eiendom bekom het na 1994 en titelaktes besit. ‘n Verdere byvoeging is al die miljoene hektaar grond vir trustgebiede en kommunale gebiede, wat gereserveer is vir etniese swart en khoi san volke, met 8840 tradisionele leiers in plek. Die mineraalregte wat uitgedeel word, waar ons as blankes nooit enige direkte ontvangstes uit een van hierdie groeperinge ontvang het nie. Aparte gebiede het dus nooit verdwyn nie maar is ingeskryf in die liberaal verligte kommunistiese grondwet net soos wat die grondwetregters dit wou gehad het, al van 1980 af. Dit sluit swart bemagtiging en regstelaksies hierby in. Grondwetskrywers van Kodesa is saam die regering en het hul hulself lank voor 1990 verbind tot kommunisme.

“My start-up business has been growing rapidly and I’m considering bringing a partner on board to invest and help take the business to the next level. I’m keenly aware of the importance of transformation and have identified a potential BEE partner who is prepared to take up a 51% stake in my business. That said, a new partner is a big decision and I just want to make sure there is sufficient strategic benefit in doing so?”
Since the Amended Codes of Good Practice for BEE (“BEE Codes”) came into operation about three years ago, many larger companies have found it increasingly difficult to comply with the elevated targets set for them under the Procurement element of their BEE scorecard.
Such larger companies (Generic entities) must ensure that 40% of their total procurement expenditure is from 51% black owned suppliers. Accordingly, 51% black owned suppliers have become highly sought after and favoured by larger companies who are under tremendous pressure to maximise their points under the Procurement element. This has created opportunities for companies that are 51% black owned to be highly competitive and contend for supplier contracts, previously not open to them.
Recently proposed amendments to the BEE Codes propose to further enhance the opportunities for 51% black owned companies by establishing additional incentives for companies to procure from 51% black owned suppliers, thereby strengthening the strategic value for a company to be 51% black owned. The draft amendments published for comment on 15 June 2018 propose the following amendments:
- The target for procurement expenditure on 51% black owned suppliers is to be increased from 40% to 50% of the total measured procurement expenditure.
- The total scorecard points for procurement expenditure on 51% black owned suppliers are to be increased from 9 to 11 points, ensuring that this sub-category accounts for nearly half of the total points available under the Procurement element.
- The current separate sub-categories for EME’s and QSE’e under the Procurement element are to be merged into a single sub-category with a target of 25% of the total measured procurement expenditure for this combined category. Additionally, in a further nod towards 51% black owned suppliers, these amendments propose to allow suppliers that have 51% black ownership measured using the flow-through principle, to also be recognised for expenditure under this combined sub-category.
- It is further proposed that companies can multiply their expenditure on suppliers that are at least 51% black owned, measured using the flow-through principle, by a factor of 2, enhancing the attractiveness of procuring from such companies.
Aside from the above procurement benefits, any entity which is at least 51% black owned, measured using the flow-through principle, can also qualify as a beneficiary for Supplier Development or Enterprise Development contributions. Currently, only EME’s or QSE’s (companies with a turnover of less than R50 million) qualify as beneficiaries. The proposed amendments wish to extend this by allowing all 51% black owned companies, measured using the flow-through principle, to qualify as beneficiaries, irrespective of turnover, thereby also including Generic companies (more than R50 million annual turnover) as potential beneficiaries and positioning such companies to benefit from investment or support through supplier or enterprise development agreements concluded with business partners wishing to claim points under their Enterprise and Supplier Development elements.
Importantly, the proposed amendments will only apply to entities that are measured under BEE Codes. If your business falls under a specific sector charter such as the ICT or Construction Sector BEE Charter, these amendments will not automatically apply until these sector charters have been aligned with the proposed amendments.
What is clear from the above is that from a transformation and BEE Scorecard perspective there is a clear and definite advantage to being a 51% black owned company. There are specific requirements to qualify as such a company, and if you want to ensure that you qualify as a 51% black owned company using the flow-through principle to access the additional benefits described above, it would be advisable to consult with a BEE or commercial specialist before you proceed with your transaction to ensure that your transaction is structured correctly and your business is positioned favourably to make the most of the strategic opportunities afforded to 51% black owned companies.

President Cyril Ramaphosa begins preparations for his investment summit later this month on a high after securing backing from some of the country’s biggest conglomerates to assist his jobs creation drive.
Ramaphosa also managed to secure commitments from organised businesses that all alternatives needed to be explored before retrenchments were effected. Businesses also agreed to sacrifice executive salary hikes and forgo dividends.
The financial sector said it would invest R100 billion over five years in black-owned industrial enterprises as part of its transformation commitments. Absa chief executive Maria Ramos said on the sidelines of the summit that it was a joint effort to turn the tide for the economy.
Over the past decade Cyril Ramaphosa Foundation has had a remarkable impact on the people and communities in which it works. Through dedication, collaboration and a commitment to creating positive change, Cyril Ramaphosa Foundation continues to build on its previous achievements to create the South Africa of our dreams.
