Delays with unclaimed money Processing of claims is taking longer than the usual 4-6 weeks at the moment due to increased demand. We will respond to queries as soon as we can. Thank you for your patience. Find out more

Before you send us unclaimed money you must make reasonable efforts to locate the owner using the information you hold. Unclaimed money must be sent to us quarterly, based on a reporting period of 3 months ending each March, June, September or December.  If you have information and money to send us, you should send both to us within 1 month and 20 days of the end of the quarter.

Reporting period Transfer money and information by
1 January - 31 March 20 May
1 April - 30 June 20 August
1 July - 30 September 20 November
1 October - 31 December 20 February

If a quarterly reporting period will cause your organisation difficulties, you can apply to us for a 6 monthly period (2 consecutive quarters). We may approve this as a one off variation or as ongoing. Send us a web message in myIR to request this option. 

You will need to be registered as a holder of unclaimed money, and then you can use your myIR account to send the information and make payment.
