InvestSA EC One Stop Shop
Welcome to the One Stop Shop, Eastern Cape
The InvestSA One Stop Shop initiative is geared towards providing investors with services to reduce government red tape when establishing a business. It is part of the government’s drive to become investor-friendly by improving the business environment, lowering the cost of doing business, and making the process easier.
ECDC is mandated to operate the One Stop Shop in the Western Cape, which streamlines the investment value chain for medium to large companies looking to invest in South Africa, making it easier and faster to invest in Cape Town and the province.
The centre hosts relevant government departments and state-owned entities to help investors and exporters negotiate the regulations and administration to obtain various approvals, licences, authorisations, registrations and/or permits.
Making business a pleasure in South Africa
For ease and convenience of doing business, the One Stop Shop is a centralised contact point that houses under one roof government entities such as the South African Revenue Service, the Department of Home Affairs, the Department of Environmental Affairs, Eskom and the Companies and Intellectual Properties Commission. This saves investors from having to deal with a multitude of government departments in different locations.
The One Stop Shop is committed to providing integrated investment promotion services to help investors throughout the investment value chain, and to make the process as seamless as possible. These key services include:
