Sanjeev Sharma, Chief Executive Officer

Political Exposed Persons (PEPs) are defined as high-risk customers who have greater opportunities than ordinary citizens to acquire assets through illegal means such as taking bribes and money laundering. PEPs have to be identified and screened in the Accountancy Sector because of the risks they have. The process of identifying PEPs and determining their risks is generally referred to as PEP List Screening and is a very important screening for the best implementation of AML compliance programs. Therefore, according to the local legislations, businesses have to detect PEPs and control their transactions. Businesses that do not detect PEPs and do not control their transactions are penalised for failing to comply with local laws and regulations.
