Numerous regulations fighting corruption (Sapin II law), contributing to the prevention of social risks(Duty of Vigilance), money laundering and terrorist financing (AML - Anti Money Laundering / KYC - Know Your Customer... ), require companies to comply with the evaluation of third parties (customers, suppliers, intermediaries).

More specifically in France, the Sapin II law deals with many subjects, including the fight against corruption, which concerns more than 1,600 French companies. This scope is expected to expand in light of the recommendations of the French Anti-Corruption Agency (AFA). In France, a company can be found guilty of corruption and be sentenced for this offence to a criminal penalty, as well as possibly to an administrative penalty of 1 million euros (provided for by the Sapin II law).


For companies with capital, the Ultimate Beneficial Owners (UBO) are the natural persons who either directly or indirectly hold more than 25% of the capital or voting rights of the company, or who exercise by any other means a power of control over the company.

When no natural person could be identified according to the previous criteria, the Beneficial Owner is the natural person(s) who legally represents the company. If the legal representative is a legal entity, the Beneficial Owner is the natural person(s) who legally represents this legal entity.

Before entering into a business relationship with a commercial partner (customer, supplier), the company must imperatively carry out preliminary verifications called due diligence (financial health, reputation, integrity of the partner?)

This analysis is not limited to new partners, the existing portfolio must also be monitored. To do this, it is necessary to focus on the quality of information, which can come from within the company, through customer questionnaires, or from outside, through the collection of information from reliable sources.
