Through a partnership with Empowerdex , FNB Business will be processing applications for Black Economic Empowerment (BEE) certificates through the Bank’s online banking channel.
Sanjeev Orie, CEO of Value-Adds at FNB Business , described the online application process as “ quick, easy and requires that the applicant has all the necessary documentation”.
He went on to say, “This is an exciting development because we are effectively minimising the administrative burden of obtaining BEE certificates, through a fast, cost-effective and efficient application process. BEE certification is a key imperative for most businesses operating in South Africa; therefore, our aim is to accelerate the process through a reliable and user-friendly channel.”
On his organisation’s behalf, Andile Kungwayo, Empowerdex’s Divisional Manager, said:.“This is an exciting partnership because it gives us another platform to efficiently provide a necessary service to South Africa’s businesses. We believe that the joint venture is in line with our mission to provide support to both the public and private sectors in accelerating broad-based black economic empowerment in the country.”
