True Partners Consulting’s Unclaimed Property Advisory Services Team has extensive experience and expertise in all facets of the complex and evolving area known as unclaimed property (UP). Of all the UP services that our team provides, outsourcing of the annual
compliance function is the most essential to assist our clients in maintaining good standing with their UP reporting responsibilities in all jurisdictions.
The Burden of UP Compliance
Our team understands the often daunting responsibility of annual UP compliance. We realize the rules and regulations in this ever-evolving area are inconsistent, complex, constantly changing, and sometimes appear ambiguous. Furthermore, in contrast to other state and local
compliance areas, knowledgeable resources are scarce. Through many years of experience in working with our clients, we understand these challenges and have established economical methods for identifying and processing UP.
Outsourcing of Annual Compliance
Navigating the uncertain terrain of UP compliance in more than 50 jurisdictions can be difficult and treacherous. Over and under reporting are common errors that plague many holders without resources dedicated to UP compliance. Our team utilizes our experience with hundreds
of holders to fulfill our clients’ annual UP compliance function efficiently and effectively. By employing our SSAE 16 Type 2 audited UP reporting processes, we constantly serve as your advocate by identifying and reducing risk and exposure. Our team’s primary focus is to deliver
best practices to our clients, maximize savings, and mitigate risk with proven expertise and commitment.
