How does it help in FATF?

It is important to document this cash flow, as it will help promote the data at the official level.  It will then be able to address the perennial problem of Pakistan’s foreign account deficit.  This official shipment will also help in the net expansion of taxes as the tax office will be able to better understand the traces of money and the source of income.  All of these efforts will also increase tax collection.
   Moreover, the use of informal methods helps create and support the channels used to finance money laundering and terrorism.  Such measures will definitely improve Pakistan's position during the FATF's green ranking.
