Unclaimed property can come in a variety of forms such as unused customer/client credits, refunds, unapplied cash, and uncashed vendor checks. While some may view this as free money for a company, the reality is quite the opposite. All unclaimed property must be accounted for to the appropriate state and eventually must be returned to those states. Not properly accounting for unclaimed property may result in state fines and penalties or even criminal penalties.
By taking this course, you will learn the basic information required to properly account for unclaimed property within your company and how to prepare for any state audits of your company’s unclaimed property.
