Unclaimed Property: Information Gathering and Record Retention

Recorded Wednesday, March 11, 2020

The key to a successful review of your unclaimed property liability lies in your information gathering and record retention policies. The ongoing practice of maintaining complete files helps to ensure all documents are timely and accurate and reduces the burden of tracking down historical information. Especially with the recent trend of Delaware sending out notices inviting companies to participate in their voluntary disclosure program prior to launching an audit, now is the time to address your files.

Learning objectives:

  • Why is data collection important in the world of unclaimed property
  • How to get started and where to initiate the information request
  • How structured policies and procedures can ease the pain of a VDA or audit
