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.
