The M&G online is running a story on small companies and BEE. Hopefully the final revision of the codes will have the raised levels as mentioned.
While at the BEE second round consultation meeting for QSEs, numbers seriously higher than those in the draft codes were being bandied about. The actual values being considered are supposed to be embargoed from public release because, as this article says, the final numbers are up to the DTI.
At this point, I'll say the thinking i.r.o. the numbers is encouraging, but we are just going to have to wait and see what the final numbers end up being.
It should at the very least get the vast majority of "one person businesses" off the hook.
The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.
