Customers can apply for a B-BBEE certificate at the CIPC Self Service Terminals while registering a business, or when filing Annual Returns.
For a business with a turnover of less than R10 million, a B-BBEE certificate is not required. Customers can complete an Affidavit, signed by an Commissioner of Oaths, and hand it instead of the B-BBEE certificate. Once the Affidavit has been stamped by a Commissioner of Oaths, the Affidavit serves as a B-BBEE certificate as no other verification is required for Exempted Micro Enterprises.
