Companies that procure from Level 1 suppliers spend less but can claim more. When a potential customer is in the process of choosing a supplier, their own BEE level is affected by the supplier’s level - The higher the supplier’s level, the more the customer can claim towards their procurement spend.

In other words: if clients choose a BEE level 6 company, only 60 cents out of every rand they spend, will count towards their own BEE scorecard. However, as a Level 1 company, for every R 1.00 our customers spend with us, they can claim R 1.35 against their own preferential procurement scoring.

This means that if a company procures mostly from BEE compliant entities with a high score, it results in their own procurement score being high without changing anything pertaining to the ownership, management or financial structuring of the company.

A B-BBEE certificate does not only offer economic benefits. It also shows clients and business partners that the company is committed to transformation.
