btaining a Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE) certificate for your company may seem like a tedious task, but it doesnâ€™t have to be. A certificate
can give you an edge over competitors and open a whole new arena for the growth in your business, and it might be much easier to acquire the certificate than you think.
BBEE policies are set out in the B BBEE Act, Act No. 53 of 2003, as amended, and is further reiterated by the Codes of Good Practice (which was last revised in 2015). In terms of this legislation, it is not compulsory for any business to obtain a B-BBEE certificate, it is an entirely voluntary process. What are the benefits of obtaining a BEE certificate particularly for Qualifying Small Enterprises (QSEs)? A QSE is a company that has an annual turnover of between R10 million and R50 million.
One of the biggest benefits of having a BEE certificate is being able to conduct business with Government departments on a national, provincial and municipal level, as well as other public entities, including State-owned enterprises. A valid certificate allows your business to be able to tender for government contracts, and the higher the level of your certificate, the better your chances of being the successful bidder. There are eight levels of BEE compliance, with Level 1 being the highest and most desirable level.

The LFP Group and its subsidiaries pride ourselves on being the industry leader and leading by example. LFP steadfastly believes that corporate governance and corporate compliance is a keystone for its success and long term sustainability. One of the core initiatives of LFP, is to ensure that all of its legal entities conform to the multiple statutory and regulatory frameworks, which apply to each entity, in its specific sectoral industry. LFP
works closely with its external corporate legal team, which includes an Advocate admitted in the High Court of South Africa, who continuously monitors and evaluates the multitude of compliance obligations relevant to LFP. LFP further has its eye firmly on the future and to streamline its compliance programme, LFP has employed an in house admitted Attorney from May 2019, to oversee all its compliance functions. In addition, they will work in
conjunction with LFPâ€™s external legal team, on a daily basis. LFP is registered with SETA and through this accreditation provides expert and sustainable Skills Development programmes to its clients. The benefit to any client entering into a strategic partnership with LFP, is the peace-of-mind of knowing that all legal compliance issues have been expertly dealt with.
So as to constantly ensure LFPâ€™s legal compliance, specific emphasis is placed, but not limited to the following legislation and regulations:
LFP LEGAL COMPLIANCE CHECKLIST The Consumer Protection Act 68 of 2008; The Copyright Act 98 of 1979; The Constitution of the Republic of South Africa Act 106 of 1996; The Labour Relations Act 66 of 1995; The Occupational Health and Safety Act 85 of 1993; The Promotion of Access to Information Act 2 of 2000; The Basic Conditions of Employment Act 95 of 1997; The Skills Development Act 97 of 1998; The Skills Development Levies Act 9 of 1999; The Unemployment Insurance Act 63 of 2001; The Employment Equity Act 55 of 1998; The Electronic Communications Act 36 of 2005; The Electronic Communications and Transactions Act 25 of 2002; The Income Tax Act 58 of 1962; The National Credit Act 34 of 2005; The Value Added Tax Act 89 of 1991; The Companies Act 71 of 2008; The Protection of Personal Information Act 4 of 2013; The Trust Property Control Act 31 of 1998; The King IV Report on Corporate Governance for South Africa 2016; The Competition Act 89 of 1998; The Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment Act 53 of 2003; The B BBEE Codes of Good Practice 2013.
HUMAN RESOURCES COMPLIANCE
espite the significant difference between the employment relationship and learnerships, we have to be conscious of the regulations dealing with Sectoral Determinations, which states that: learnerships impose certain “employment” requirements onto the host/lead employer and the training provider. Our off-site solution implies that the learner is in fact hosted at the LFP Campuses for the duration of their theoretical and practical training. Our Campus management
and training infrastructure therefore accommodates the learner for the full duration of the learnership program, which in turn includes dealing with all performance and conduct related matters. The hassle-free solution offered by LFP Training includes a dedicated Campus HR and IR service that manages the relationship requirements imposed by legislation on behalf of our clients. Dedicated specialists manage this function as
we are fully aware of the status of the “employment” relationship and what such a relationship entails. Therefore LFP Training manage HR and IR on behalf of our client (“the employer”) whilst remaining sensitive to the fact that our interventions always have to carry the approval of the client and be aligned to all applicable legislation and policy of our client when dealing with the learner.

A LETTER FROM STEPHANIE WEIL OF THE MISS SOUTH AFRICA ORGANISATION
he Miss South Africa Organisation is delighted that LFP Group has come on board as a major sponsor of Miss South Africa 2019 with the pageant taking place this year on Women’s Day on August 9. Miss South Africa is a celebration of women and we truly believe that the contest is more relevant than ever. It embraces a young woman who works hard, is dedicated to helping others, is a voice to her fellow countrymen and shows them that they too can chase after their dreams as long as they work hard and give as much as they can along the way. Simply put Miss South Africa changes lives. It’s a platform that celebrates and empowers women. Most importantly, it allows women to have a voice and have their opinions heard. For the Miss South Africa Organisation, LFP Group was a perfect fit as both companies have the same values. We are both passionate about women empowerment and promoting diversity across all races. This is a new partnership but already the LFP Group is part of the Miss South Africa family thanks to the company’s ethos and enthusiasm. They are clearly passionate about everything they do and we look forward to a productive partnership. Stephanie Weil Miss South Africa Organisation spokesperson

We get the opportunity to live out this dream because of the amazing fans that embark on this journey with us, and experience all the emotions as well. The boys and I get to do this on a daily basis because of the people that believe in us and empower us… People like our amazing sponsors and partners, that put their money and efforts where their mouths are. A great relationship with a sponsor is built on many factors, and even though there are guys upstairs in the offices at Loftus that handle that for us, it’s always important for the boys and I to find similarities and links so that we can also believe in those brands. The LFP group have been part of the #BullsFamily for a little over a year now, and yet it seems like they have been with us so much longer. They are a company that thrives on excellence, with a massive focus on training and development. As a team we have the same focus. Excellence is no doubt a key focus for us as well, and it’s something that every player works day in and day out to achieve. LFP have built systems and programmes to help their clientele with training and development, which they have honed and perfected over the years… another similarity close to home for us. I would like to take this opportunity to say a massive thank you to all the staff at LFP that work tirelessly behind the scenes not only for us at the Bulls, but also for their splendid efforts in uplifting this beautiful country. We look forward to walking a long road ahead together and achieving excellence, both in their training rooms and on our rugby fields. YOURS IN RUGBY LOOD DE JAGER CAPTAIN, VODACOM BULLS
