Exempt Micro Enterprises (EMEs) can submit a sworn EME Affidavit to certify their over 51% Black ownership structure and qualify for level 2 or level 1 BBBEE recognition.

Exempt Micro Enterprise BBBEE Affidavits

If your business has an annual revenue of less than R10 million, you qualify as an Exempt Micro Enterprise and gain automatic BBBEE Level 4 recognition.

However, if your business is more than 51% black-owned, you qualify for Level 2, while a 100% black-owned EME qualifies for BBBEE Level 1. This will be verified with a sworn EME Affidavit.

Use our editable BEE affidavit templates below to verify your ownership structure.
