Important BEE Update and new Procedures from the DTI / BEE Commissioner:
Please note that SAIPA and SAIBA Accountants may no longer issue BEE Verifications / BEE Certificates / BEE Confirmations of any kind. The BEE Commissioner has instructed both Accounting Boards to stop issuing these. We are therefore unable to assist any Clients with BEE Verifications.
GOOD NEWS! If your annual turnover / sales is below R 10 million, your Company qualifies as an Exempt Micro Enterprise (EME). EMEs do NOT require a BEE Certificate / BEE Verification anymore, but only an Affidavit for their Tenders. This Affidavit will SERVE AS YOUR BEE CERTIFICATE. EMEs can get a BEE Affidavit for FREE from the DTI. You can visit the following link for more information about the new requirements and to get your free BEE Affdavit from the DTI:
If you have already made payment, and you have not received your BEE Verification, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org requesting a full refund. Please also email through your Company Name, Your Banking Details, the Amount that you have paid, the Date of Payment, and the Payment Reference that you used to make payment (of just your proof of payment).
