During 1995 SA Stud Book formed a company known as Stemma Animalia (Pty) Ltd. The name of the company means 'pedigrees of animals'.
SA Stud Book is the sole owner of Stemma Animalia and the entire executive committee automatically forms the Board of Directors of Stemma Animalia. Since SA Stud Book is a non-profit organisation, and therefore exempt from tax liabilities, Stemma Animalia serves as its commercial arm, acting as holding company for Stud Book's investments and fixed assets, like its very efficient building.
Stemma Animalia also renders a very effective and needed service to various Breeders’ Societies through its secretarial service.
Stemma Animalia runs a service organisation known as the Secretariat. The Secretariat is a non-profit organisation that renders financial and administrative services to several breeders’ societies.
The Secretariat is not in competition with other independent societies. They supply an administrative service to societies that choose, because of logistical reasons, not to run their own offices and rather make use of the Secretariat’s infrastructure, but still keep their own identity. The core function of the Secretariat is to manage the general and financial administration of the society in the most professional way possible. The goal is not to take over the management of the society. That stays the responsibility of the Board.
Societies that make use of the Secretariat services, enjoy amongst others, the following benefits:
