Companies with 200 or more employees handle bureaucracy better - Alan Winde

Small businesses with less than 200 employees are more likely to face administrative struggles, according to Western Cape MEC for Economic Opportunities Alan Winde.

Winde said the Red Tape Reduction Unit has found that bureaucracy is harder to handle for SMMEs.

According to Winde, their unit had found that most complaints relate to import and export permits, company registrations and overdue payments.

Listen to the full conversation (with John Webb standing in) on CapeTalk's Breakfast with Kieno Kammies:

The Western Cape government has been on a drive to reduce the amount of unnecessary red tape in its system to allow people to get on with doing their work and growing the economy.

Although they have not resolved every case brought forward to them, Winde said the unit had a success rate that's over 90%.

The Red Tape Reduction feature takes place every second Wednesday at 8am on CapeTalk's Breakfast with Kieno Kammies.
