Unclaimed Property: Why Your Company Can't Afford NOT to Be in Compliance

October 9

It is critical to your company’s financial well-being to avoid the risks of not complying with unclaimed property reporting laws.

The 2016 Uniform Unclaimed Property Act, Delaware enforcement reform, and the rise of the third party audit firms, are factors that have triggered dramatic change in the unclaimed property compliance paradigm. Anticipating shifting state requirements and potentially costly audit pitfalls has become increasingly difficult for businesses attempting to navigate the unclaimed property compliance maze. This topic provides not only a basic understanding of unclaimed property requirements and an overview of state audits and voluntary disclosure programs but also an update on the legislative and regulatory trends that may continue to define business compliance obligations now and in the future. Presenters will offer insights for realigning policies, procedures and processes consistent with the trends will be discussed to aid you in considering measures that may enhance your company’s unclaimed property compliance program.

Learning Objectives

  • You will be able to identify potential property types that may be generated within your organization.
  • You will be able to describe the basic unclaimed property compliance obligations.
  • You will be able to explain the pros and cons of state voluntary disclosure programs.
  • You will be able to recognize specific trends and adapt your unclaimed property compliance approach to align with them.
