South Africa: Draft Amendment B-BBEE Tourism Sector Codes Gazetted


Pretoria — Trade and Industry Minister Rob Davies has gazetted the Draft Tourism B-BBEE Codes in terms of Section 9 (5) of the Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE) Amendment Act.

According to the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), the draft Tourism B-BBEE Codes deviates from the exempted micro enterprises, qualifying small enterprises and large enterprise thresholds as set out in the Amended Generic Codes of Good Practice. This is to address the unique feature of sector.

The following thresholds will apply to the tourism sector: exempted micro enterprise which is an enterprise that makes a total revenue of less than R5 million per annum (R10 million in the generic codes), qualifying small enterprise is an enterprise which makes a total revenue of between R5 million and R45 million per annum (between R10 – R50 million in the generic codes), while a large enterprise in the tourism sector is an enterprise which makes a total revenue of over R45 million per annum (above R50 million in the generic codes).

According to the Minister, these unique thresholds will ensure that as many enterprises in the sector contribute towards transformation, which will not be the case if the sector was using the Amended Generic Codes.

Another key highlight for the tourism sector is that under the ownership element the compliance target is 30% + 1 Vote, rather than the 25%+1 Vote under Generic Codes.
