What is the Unclaimed Property Compliance Hub?

States continue to enforce unclaimed property (UP) compliance. UP is broadly defined as any property held by companies in which the owner is lost and/or there has been no customer-generated activity for a statutorily mandated period of time, known as the dormancy period. Research conducted by Sovos found that there is nearly $77 billion in unclaimed assets in the United States, and states are looking for their share. Though reporting UP to the appropriate state is a company’s responsibility, it has been reported by at least one organization that less than 20% of companies are in full compliance with UP laws. Noncompliance can result in costly audits, large interest and penalties as well as damage to company reputation.

Sovos wants to provide you with the necessary tools to stay up-to-date and compliant in this ever-changing industry, that’s why we have created the UP Compliance Hub.

Sovos’ Compliance Hub provides your company with the tools needed to ensure compliance in the constantly evolving world of UP.
