Thrive Corporate Advisors is a B-BBEE Consulting and Advisory company that assists companies in achieving their B-BBEE objectives. Our services include but are not limited to monitoring the B-BBEE status levels/scoring achieved by our clients, reviewing, and implementing B-BBEE initiatives and developing B-BBEE transformation strategies.
Thrive Corporate Advisors will be able to assist with all legislation that incorporates a B-BBEE component. For example, Thrive has assisted various entities in the renewables sector under the REIPP programme, which has a B-BBEE component.
Thrive Corporate Advisors are experts in B-BBEE and utilizing a Thrive advisor allows you to free up resources to focus on other areas.
With the release of the Amended Codes of Good Practice and aligned sector charters, it is essential to have any initiatives assessed to ensure there are no surprises during your final audit. Thrive Corporate Advisors will review any proposed initiatives or ownership deals and provide indicative scoring attached to the initiative’s implementation or proposed ownership deals. This includes in-depth Trust analysis and implementing Private Equity Funds or Equity Equivalents. We also provide a risk analysis report summarizing concerns or interpretation issues.
Implementing an initiative to optimize your scorecard can be costly. You don’t want to get to audit day and find out the initiative does not qualify. It is suggested to run all proposed initiatives past a Thrive advisor to confirm compliance. Similarly, it is essential to verify with a Thrive Advisor anything that is not clearly defined in the legislation to ensure that required scoring is obtained.
