What we do
Georgeson offers a full suite of unclaimed property consulting services, tailored to fit your needs.
High-Level Risk Assessment
The high-level risk assessment is most appropriate for companies that have a moderate to strong reporting history. Think of it as an unclaimed property checkup to make sure that your compliance program is healthy and working as designed. It can identify and fix small problems before they become big problems.
Comprehensive Risk Assessment
Ideal for companies that have not reported unclaimed property or have gaps in compliance identified through a high-level risk assessment. The comprehensive risk assessment identifies the potential unreported unclaimed property liability.
Once the potential liability is identified, additional work must be performed to ensure only actual unclaimed property is reported. Remediation includes internal research, identification of exemptions and other exclusions and owner outreach.
Compliance/Voluntary Disclosure Agreements (VDAs)
After discovering your liabilities, we prepare the reporting and paperwork required to become compliant with unclaimed property laws. VDA options are identified to avoid the interest and penalties where possible.
Support in navigating the unclaimed property audit process, which varies by industry and auditor.
Policies and Procedures
Having formal unclaimed property policies and procedures helps ensure future compliance. Georgeson assists with the development and implementation of comprehensive unclaimed property policies and the corresponding detailed procedures.
