Watch the video and find out how it works

Fraud Assessment and Intelligence Tool (FAIT) is an automated solution that allows screening large volumes of third parties and identification of financial, tax, fraud and other risks.

Our solution automatically collects large amounts of data: registration, financial, geographical, press information and other from multiple sources. In a next step it performs a series of tests, that allows to assess the overall risk of cooperation for each tested entity.

The regulator requires due diligence

Companies are legally required to exercise due care in screening their business partners. At the moment, the Polish Ministry of Finance sets out business partner screening guidelines for business organizations, but the list is by no means exhaustive. 

It should be emphasized that third party screening is a natural process for starting and continuing cooperation with third parties, which is intended to protect the companies from various risks, such as:

  • Tax risk – the loss of the right to deduct VAT or involvement in tax fraud / VAT carousels.
  • Financial risk - losses due to failure to pay financial liabilities by contractors.
  • Operational risk - the loss of the reputation of a reliable trade partner.
  • Reputational risk - concerning unethical or fraudulent behavior, including corruption.

Functionalities

Support in periodical third party screening

FAIT is a perfect solution for performing one-time screening of full databases of our clients' business partners, as well as for performing periodic verifications (most popularly, on a quarterly, half-yearly or annual basis).

Support in documenting due care

FAIT provides support in demonstrating due diligence in the process of third party screening in case of a dispute with the tax authorities.

Analysis of large volumes of third parties in a short time based on data from multiple sources

FAIT enables verification of hundreds or thousands of third parties using, among others, data from business registers, financial information, information on VAT status, sanctions lists, national “blacklists”, press information, government recommendations, geographical data, opinions of research agencies and many others.

Risk analyses from different angles - tailored to the client’s specifics

FAIT uses a number of PwC’s specifically designed tests and weights assigned to them which enables tailoring the solution to the client’s specifics. Then based on the results of tests, it performs an assessment and calculates the overall risk rating for each of the tested third parties from the tax, financial, operational and reputational perspective.

FAIT can be used both to verify your current as well as potential business partners with whom you would like to cooperate.
