Webcast: Understanding Delaware's New Unclaimed Property Legislation

Calendar January 26, 2017

1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. CDT

Almost seven months after the federal district court in Temple-Inland sanctioned the State of Delaware against its overly aggressive unclaimed property audit practices, the State is set to introduce legislation which is intended to address many of the asserted constitutional violations raised against the State, while not necessarily emasculating its considerable revenue source.

Please join us for a 45-minute comprehensive webinar to discuss the contents of the proposed legislation and its impact on companies currently under Delaware initiated audits as well as those thinking about or who are current participating in voluntary disclosure programs administered by the Secretary of State or the Department of Finance.

Program Topics:

  • Highlights of the new legislation.
  • Contrast of legislative proposal with guidelines set forth in the Federal Temple-Inland decision issued back in June, 2016.
  • Steps companies can take to start preparing now before the legislation is enacted; and
  • Best practices to ensure all options are considered based on each company’s facts and circumstances.
