BEE Trusts

Do you need to Register a BEE Trust to apply for a Tender / Contract which requires you to have a BEE Level 1 or 2 Status? Our Lawyer will draft your BEE Trust according to South Africa’s Trust Act within 48 hours, and then register your BEE Trust ASAP.

The primary purpose of a BEE Trust is to facilitate BEE ownership in juristic entities. And as a result enable and enhance transformation resulting in both a capital and income return for the BEE Beneficiaries. For certain tenders and contracts in SA you need a Company with at least 10% Black Ownership. In most cases, you need a BEE Level 1 or 2 Company structured correctly. The easiest way to go about this is to setup a Trust according to your BEE needs; and then make the Trust the Shareholder of a Company, instead of individuals. This is called a BEE Trust. We are BEE Trust Specialists and can assist you to setup an entity at the required BEE Level. Apply on this page or call us toll free for consultation.
