B-BBEE points

Common Good is a Level 1 B-BBEE contributor, independently audited, certified and experienced. We can provide points in the following areas:

B-BBEE Social Economic Development (SED)

  • SED carries a weighting of 5 B-BBEE points according to the amended scorecard
  • 1% of net profit after tax must be spent for full SED points to be awarded
  • S18A tax certificate can be issued for tax benefits

B-BBEE Skills Development

  • Skills Development is a priority element, carrying a weight of 25 points on the amended scorecard
  • Entities must score at least 40% in this element to avoid being discounted by one B-BBEE recognition level
  • 6% of total payroll costs needs to be spent on Skills Development for maximum B-BBEE points
  • Common Good’s employment initiative offers job readiness training, and can therefore partially assist with points for Skills Development in Categories F & G (informal training for unemployed Black South Africans in general – this does not have to be for your company’s employees)
  • 0.9% of total payroll can be used for training in Categories F & G
  • We count as a Level 1 supplier
