FINANCIAL SUPPORT

To be considered for financial support, businesses need to submit all the standard mandatory documents such as CIPC registration; tax clearance; FICA requirements; company profiles and management profiles. Businesses also need to submit a business plan (GEP will assist in the development where applicable within GEP’s qualification processes) where funding is for start-up, expansion and franchise purposes. For contract finance, a business plan is not required. The viability assessment of contract financing is based on the actual contract or purchase order. Business plans are not required for micro-finance applications below R50 000. All products under financial support will be assessed and funded based on assessment report.
