Eme information

  1. 1. EME - Exempt Micro Enterprise  Any business with an annual turnover of less than R5million pa qualifies as an Exempted company in accordance with the BBBEE Act.  An EME certificate is recognised as proof of an exemption status by all large companies as well as government establishments.  EME’s are automatically allocated a level 4 BEE score. Any procurement from a level 4 can be claimed at the rate of 100% of any qualifying spend with your company. However if your company is more than 50% black owned (male or female) it can increase your level by one category – level 3. Any procurement from your company can be claimed at the rate of 110% of any qualifying spend from other suppliers. You are exempt from filling out a scorecard which is normally required by a verification agency.  An EME certificate is also valid for 12 months meaning you do not need to get a letter every time it is requested by Suppliers.  Large companies are encouraged to spend with small business, so by getting your EME certificate you guarantee making yourself a lot more competitive.  By having an EME certificate you can assist your main customers in optimizing their BEE scorecard.  The BEE codes are all about creating employment. Therefore if your wages added to your NPBT exceeds 25% of your turn over you will qualify as a Value added supplier. Russell Florence – 081 581 6998 - 011 4731979 - -
