Venue: 05 Sherborne Road, Unit 03 Sherborne Square, Off Jan Smuts Avenue, Parktown, Johannesburg Cost: R 2000 ex vat

Information:
This is the basics workshop on Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE) that you have been missing! BEESA has been in the business of providing B-BBEE consulting and training for over a decade. As a result, we have encountered most situations as they may relate to B-BBEE and its implementation. We have discovered a common challenge that many of those trying to implement B-BBEE are facing and that is that they have either never read the Codes of Good Practice or for those that have, many have found it to be a challenging read, further complicated by negative emotional sentiment and varying interpretive issues. With this workshop, we simplify the B-BBEE Codes of Good Practice through an understandable presentation where we promote questions and discussion. We also cover many of the interpretive issues that are faced in real-world implementation along with ways that these can be dealt with. This workshop is a must for anyone newly tasked with the implementation or management of B-BBEE in their business or those seeking a better understanding of the NEW B-BBEE Codes of Good Practice.

ARE IMPORTS DESTROYING YOUR PREFERENTIAL PROCUREMENT SCORE? - 13 April 2017 - 2 delegates per company limit

Date: 2017-April-13 Time: 9:00 - 11h00
Venue: Unit 3, 5 Sherbourne Rd, Parktown, JHB Cost: FREE

Information:
The cost of doing B-BBEE has increased significantly with the introduction of the amended B-BBEE Codes of Good Practice. The newly introduced exclusion of Imports from Preferential Procurement is an additional challenge. Importers are at times not able to score enough points in Preferential Procurement and therefore have to spend large amounts of money in other elements to ensure required B-BBEE Levels or Compliance is achieved. As a result of these challenges and costs, Importers are finding B-BBEE a tough pill to swallow. Should this be your business’s situation this presentation may have some answers.

LINKING BEE POINTS TO TRANSFORMATION - 25 April 2017 - 2 delegates per company limit

Date: 2017-April-25 Time: 9:00 - 11h00
Venue: Unit 3, 5 Sherbourne Rd, Parktown, JHB Cost: FREE

Information:
One of the most regular issues raised by delegates during sessions we present which touch on the topic of Transformation, is the lack of involvement of all who impact the B-BBEE score. Leadership and Line Management typically see the responsibility for the B-BBEE points as that of the B-BBEE Manager, with some involvement from Human Resources and Supply Chain personnel expected. There are numerous people throughout the organisation who make daily decisions which affect the B-BBEE score. In most companies the majority of employees don’t know the importance of the roles they play in the sustainability of the B-BBEE level, and therefore also the sustainability of the company. Roles and responsibilities are typically not clear and even confusing. Even if the roles and responsibilities have been clarified, the responsible people often have non-desirable responses – they put their heads in the sand (ignorant ostriches), resist the change (lone wolves), or don’t know how to implement the necessary change (eager beavers).

Managing People Through EAP - 10 May 2017

Date: 2017-May-10 Time: 9:00 - 15h00
Venue: BEESA Business Services, 05 Sherborne Road, Unit 03 Sherborne Square, Off Jan Smuts Avenue, Parktown Cost: R 3000 ex vat

Information:
With the new changes in Broad-Based Balck Economic Empowerment there is a much stronger requirement to move away from pure Transactional B-BBEE, where scoring points was the focus, to a combination of Transactional B-BBEE and Transformational B-BBEE. Transformational B-BBEE is about changing the way that business is conducted in South Africa to drive the much-needed shift in economic participation and therefore the resultant impact on poverty and job creation. Transformational B-BBEE needs to become the new focus with support and understanding of Transactional B-BBEE. One of the biggest shifts in B-BBEE is the alignment of targets to the national targets of the Economically Active Population or EAP. This is a move away from the previous broad requirement of Black participation and further defines the specific needs of the country. This has a major impact on people management within the business and the larger the business the more complex this can become.

Understand how Tax Incentives can reduce the NET COST of a Learnership - FREE Session - 29 May 2017

Date: 2017-May-29 Time: 9:00 - 11h30
Venue: BEESA Business Services, 05 Sherborne Road, Unit 03 Sherborne Square, Off Jan Smuts Avenue, Parktown Cost: Free

Information:
BEESA will be conducting a FREE Session to assist businesses to understand how Tax Incentives can reduce the NET COST of a Learnership if the company register a Learnership. Skills Development has been identified as a Priority Element in the Amended Codes of Good Practice and therefore a company needs to achieve 40% of the Skills Development points in order to avoid a drop in B-BBEE Level. With the Skills Development Expenditure Target being doubled, businesses need to take a strategic approach to maximise on the B-BBEE points and also have a Return-of-Investment in mind. Section 12 H (a) of the Income Tax Act governs the South African Revenue Service to provide additional incentives for registered Learnerships. However the Tax Allowance expires on 1 October 2016. Therefore it is imperative for a company to register with their SETA’s for a Learnership in order to be eligible for the Tax Allowance. BEESA in association with Training Force will provide you an understanding of the Tax Allowances that can aid a company to afford to run a Learnership.

Ownership Seminar - The Evolution of Black Equity Participation : 31 May 2017

Date: 2017-May-31 Time: 9:00 - 15h00
Venue: 05 Sherborne Road, Unit 03 Sherborne Square, Off Jan Smuts Avenue, Parktown, Johannesburg Cost: R 3000 ex vat

Information:
As many of you will be aware, the new B-BBEE Codes place far more emphasis on the Ownership element than the old B-BBEE Codes do. Without any Black shareholding the most a company can achieve under the new B-BBEE Codes is a Level 5 and that is only if they claim virtually every other point available. For the majority of companies this is impractical as it requires significant spend and a huge amount of effort. As a result more and more companies are turning to the Ownership element for a more effective way to score BEE points. If you are in this position and have never really considered the Ownership element before or if your company has Black shareholding, but you have realised that changes need to be made to meet the requirements of the new Codes then this seminar is for you.
