DelhiDesk Chartered accountants, company secretaries, and cost accountants in India can now be held liable under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) for certain financial transactions carried out on behalf of their clients. The Finance Ministry has brought them under the ambit of the PMLA for five types of financial transactions, including managing bank accounts and sale/purchase of properties. Chartered accountants will be equally liable for punishment and fines under the PMLA Act, 2002, along with their clients. The move is aimed at curbing black money, and the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) will conduct an awareness program for its members to adapt them to this change.
