Objectives of MCEP
•
Encourage enterprises to upgrade their production facilities, processes,
products and up-skill workers
•
Provide for upgrading of sectors in order to maximise output and
employment
•
Expand existing IDC distressed funding facility to SMEs, and reduce cost
of capital for distressed enterprises
•
Reduce the price of working capital for exporters and businesses
participating in govt infrastructure programmes
•
Strengthen the responsiveness of available incentive schemes to the
current economic challenges.
3
Key principles
• Flexibility and customisation
– MCEP matrix incentive operates as a single programme with one
overarching budget
– Budget can be shifted amongst components depending on
uptake between and during financial years – “test the market”
– Individual components have clear, rules-bound access criteria
– However, criteria can be customised on a sectoral basis
informed by market failures / constraints identified in CSPs.
• Sector prioritisation
– Labouri Intensity
– Strategic linkages within value chains
– Vulnerability

MCEP Framework
• Non-taxable grant calculated as a % of Manufacturing Value
Added (MVA) and capped as follows:
– 7% of MVA - enterprises larger than R200m in assets
– 10% of MVA - enterprises with assets >R30m – <R200m
– 12% of MVA - enterprises with assets between >R5m –
<R30m
– 15% of MVA – 100% black-owned enterprises and
enterprises with assets below R5m
• Available over a two year period
• Grant more favourable to SMEs
