Why do I need to register on the central supplier database?
Companies who wish to do business with the South African government, have to register their companies on the central supplier database. This is a database run by the government.
What happens after I have registered my company?
After registration, the company will receive a unique number. The company then has to ensure that it meets all the criteria as required on the central supplier database. This includes the tax status of the company, as well as the BEE status.
