Treasury launches Business Loss Registration Portal for businesses affected by July 2021 unrest

Business Loss Registration Portal to register businesses affected by the July 2021 unrest

The government is launching a registration portal today for the registration of businesses that were affected by the unrest which took place during 9-19 July 2021 in KwaZulu-Natal, Gauteng and other affected areas in the country.

As part of the relief package announced by President Cyril Ramaphosa on 25 July 2021, a range of measures are being implemented by national and provincial governments to help small and medium businesses which suffered damage or losses to rebuild.

The registration portal will collect data from affected businesses to better coordinate these relief measures as well as to inform future interventions. It will provide a single governmental entry point for businesses to indicate the extent of losses they have suffered, and to access available facilities.

The government calls on all business owners who were affected by the unrest between 9 and 19 July 2021 to register on the portal, which can be accessed via the QR code or link below. Alternatively, business owners who experience problems accessing the portal may make use of the toll-free call centre contact number below. The call centre operating hours are 08:00 to 17:00 on weekdays (but closed on public holidays).

Data collected through the portal will be kept secure and will only be used to improve the delivery of support measures being administered through various national and provincial government entities. All businesses affected by the unrest are encouraged to register.

The portal and call centre will remain open for affected businesses to register until Thursday, 30 September at 17:00.
