Hi @sathishceog703 welcome to the forum!

If you're using PyQt5 (GPL version) the GPL requires you to make the source code available to the users of your application. But only with them, and only on request. It doesn't require you to distribute the application to anyone you don't want to.

If you developed the application in the company (the company owns the copyright) and it's being used in the company (the company is the user) then you're not distributing it.

The PySide2 library is LGPL licensed, so this restriction doesn't apply (you only need to distribute changes you make to PySide2 itself).
