All South African companies and entities are required to submit beneficial ownership information to the CIPC (Companies and Intellectual Property Commission) within 30 days of their CIPC annual return being due or within ten days of incorporation from May this year. Companies are advised to meet this deadline to avoid falling foul of the new rules and risk penalties.
Ending off its 15th successive year, the NSBC and World Famous Events announced South Africa’s Top 5 Startup Winners, Top 10 Winners, Special Award Winners and the Main Category Award Winners at the 2023 South African Small Business Awards gala breakfast on 16th November, a glittering affair attended by the business elite. These prestigious awards have gathered a diverse range of entries all with one thing in common - a driving entrepreneurial force.
“We are astounded at the diversity of entrants again this year, but equally encouraged as it shows the depth and breadth of South Africa’s entrepreneurial spirit. Growing small and medium businesses is vital to the local economy and its ever-growing rate of unemployment. This type of innovation and entrepreneurial spirit will undoubtedly cultivate a much healthier business landscape for all involved,” says Mike Anderson, Founder and CEO of the NSBC.
