B-BBEE Verification Partners

AQRate (Pty) Ltd

We offer BEE Verification Services to EME’s, QSE and Generic Businesses irrespective of the sector the business forms a part of. Each of these involve an audit of a business based on the BEE Codes of Good Practice. BEE Verification is an independent audit process aimed at verifying and validating the Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE) status of a legal entity. It is the most accurate, independent and cost effective way for businesses to establish and present their BEE levels. At the end of the audit process the client will receive a B-BBEE Certificate or in the case of EME’s and Black Owned QSE’s an affidavit with an accompanying letter of verification.
