Duff & Phelps is the trusted provider of outsourced unclaimed property reporting and compliance services to U.S. corporations.
Unclaimed property reporting is one of the most complex and time-consuming compliance requirements U.S. corporations face today. Lack of knowledge and misinformation about the requirements can lead to miscalculations, creating risk for penalties which could materially impact a company’s financial statements. With little uniformity among states, the laws and regulations are a patchwork of varying property types, dormancy periods, due diligence requirements and filing deadlines. This complexity has driven Duff & Phelps to assemble a team of experienced professionals to help our clients navigate the myriad of issues they may encounter when dealing with unclaimed property reporting. At the core of the team is a deep, technical understanding of unclaimed property reporting and compliance, combined with broad industry experience.
