Annual Registration fees, mainly paid by the unemployed: - Cedric - 11-06-2012 09:40 AM

Annual Income to control the Industry Regulations:

The 9320 actively registered businesses @ R 4250 per annum, = R 39 610 000. (39.6 million)
The 1.9 million individuals @ R 7 per month, = R 84 per annum, = R156 600 000 (156.6 million)
= R 196 210 000 (196.2 million)
Add to this the level of fines?????

In excess of 50 - 70% of these figures are payable by the unemployed.

The unemployed continues to accrue outstanding monthly fees, when they find employment, their employer is required to collect the total outstanding from the employee.

There is so much flux in the employment structure, that the this concept hardly is noticed.

We need to transform this industry, we need to stop making the unemployed pay for the control functions that are aimed to curb 'unfair competition'.

This industry was built off the ‘night-watchman’ concept where the building and assets were protected by a night-watchman with a kirrie, and crime levels were possible lower.

Not much has changed, the kirrie has now been replaced by the baton, and we have introduced access control where visitors need to be registered, and in many instances, their hand-luggage scanned.

Why did we not see this when we selected the road less traveled?

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I --
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
Robert Frost

By giving our people the opportunity to achieve Economic Freedom through participation, we will contribute towards the financial ability to increase the numbers employed, and in turn the reduction of crime,
