This is a bit vague - can you give us an actual example? 'Finance Team' and CVA are fairly broad, so a number of things could qualify here. –  Phil H Jul 28 at 9:30

Hi Saurabh, welcome to quant.SE! Thank you for asking your question here. I concur with @Phil H and I'm not sure what you mean with 'Finance Team'? It can mean different things to different people and the question in its current form is too broad to be answered. –  Bob Jansen Jul 28 at 15:36

The CVA charge in Basel iii reporting increases the capital required for OTC derivatives trading. Apart from CVA, there are DVA and FVA that are important. The adjustments might be unitary reffered to as XVA, as the principle is the same.
