Are you geared up for the revised BBBEE Codes?
The revised BBBEE Code of Good Practice is expected to be finalised in the latter half of 2013, and it is anticipated that a transitional period of one year will be allowed before it is enforced. This gives companies the opportunity to align and ensure they have addressed all new aspects to avoid dropping their BEE levels. Izikhulu will be hosting seminars and workshops in Durban and Johannesburg once the Codes are gazetted to fast-track companies' understanding and application of the new Codes, so watch out for our alerts. We will also be able to provide you with a scorecard snapshot of how your company would currently rank on the revised Codes, giving you invaluable information on the gaps that need to be addressed during the transitional year.
