Overview of the CSD Changes:

Effective from 24 May 2024, all CSD-registered suppliers must ensure their Beneficial Ownership information is up to date with the CIPC. This change is part of the effort to comply with the General Laws (Anti-Money Laundering and Combating Terrorism Financing) Amendment Act of 2022.

What does this mean for CSD-Registered Suppliers?

Suppliers who have not updated their Beneficial Ownership information may face significant challenges, including:

Non-Compliance: Failure to update ownership details may lead to non-compliance with government regulations, which could result in penalties for your business.

Verification Issues: Inaccurate or outdated information can cause verification problems on the CSD, potentially hindering business operations.

Missed Opportunities: Suppliers may miss out on tender opportunities and contracts due to non-compliance or verification issues on the CSD.

Importance of Beneficial Ownership:

Understanding and maintaining Beneficial Ownership information is crucial for transparency and compliance. Beneficial Ownership refers to the individuals who ultimately own or control a company. Accurate records are crucial for regulatory compliance and for establishing trust with business partners and stakeholders. Neglecting to file doesn’t just risk non-compliance; it can significantly prevent your company’s growth and reputation in both local and international markets.
