FAQs

I’m a small business owner. Will signing up for a CRA subscription help me?

Yes. Small businesses are particularly vulnerable to political and economic risks in South Africa. CRA subscriptions are not only for large corporations − organisations of various sizes subscribe to our service.

I don’t have time to read through long reports. How much time will reading your material take me each week?

CRA reports are brief and to the point, saving you time in your busy schedule. Our Monday morning Risk Alert will help you to identify the key risks for the week ahead in under ten minutes. And if you don’t have time to read, you can also watch a short video or listen to a podcast over a quick cup of coffee.

What is risk?

Risks are the forces and events that can negatively impact the operation of your business and the security of your assets. South Africa is particularly vulnerable to political risks and has a hostile economic policy framework. Our team of experts can draw on decades of combined experience to help you make informed decisions for the future.

I recently lost my job, or my business closed. Why do I need a CRA subscription?

During turbulent times, you need the best advice to help you to protect your assets, your family and yourself. A CRA subscription is a small price to pay for your long-term peace of mind.
