Unclaimed Financial Assets: Implications for Auditors-MANDATORY TRAINING
Date: 7th July 2020
Time: 16:00 – 18:00 Hours
The Unclaimed Financial Assets Authority (UFAA) is a statutory organization established under the National Treasury pursuant to the Unclaimed Financial Assets (UFAA) Act No. 40 of 2011 with the primary mandate to receive unclaimed financial assets from the holders of such assets, safeguard and re-unite the assets with their rightful owners. When property accounts go unclaimed, they are turned over to the state for reasons that may include the death of the account holder, a failure to register a forwarding address after changing residence, or simply forgetting about an account.
The rationale is that the state is best placed to receive, preserve and protect unclaimed financial assets in the interest of the beneficiaries;
- Under the law, the state is better placed to search for unclaimed money and properties, unclaimed financial assets include bank savings and deposits, cheques and drafts, deposits from credit union, various investments form Listed companies, money orders and funds held or owing under any life or endowment insurance policy or annuity contract.
- Others include shares, dividends, gift certificates, credit memo, estate proceeds, unpaid wages, pension money, allowances, bonuses and terminal benefits, assets held in safe deposit box or repository and those held by court or a state department plus the undelivered tax refunds from government.
