Why Have I Been Contacted Regarding Finances That Have Been Lost?
As refund consultants, we reach out to assist and work with people with lost money owing to them. We have reached out to you because we believe you may have lost funds owing to you. In most cases, people are unaware that these funds are laying in wait to be claimed so it’s often a nice surprise for people to find out that money could be owing to them without their knowledge.
What Is Lost Money In Australia?
When a person or company “forgets” about money in various accounts, the lost money is transferred to (in many cases) a non-interest-bearing Government Trust Account. Of course, this is only done when the Financial Institution or previous authority cannot locate the owner. What may interest you, is that if owners of this money do not claim within a specific length of time, in most cases this money is then absorbed as government revenue. Each state in Australia has separate laws relating to lost funds and various institutions responsible for lost monies have their own sets of rules making it a difficult process.

How Do Australians Misplace Millions Of Dollars Every Year?
Every day, people and businesses leave cash in financial institutions, insurance companies, and government authorities. It’s human nature to forget and even the best-kept records can even have gaps. As absurd as it sounds, it happens constantly from simply moving houses or overseas or just forgetting about deposits or investments, or not knowing there’s been money left to you by a desceased relative.
However, some areas we commonly deal with are desceased estate will monies, unpresented cheques, dormant bank accounts, superannuation, company takeovers, bonds, the list is endless.
Read more about lost money in the news. This particular article discusses bank accounts alone, you can see you’re probably not alone in having lost funds. A staggering $314 billion is currently sitting unclaimed by Australians.

So How Is My Money Returned?

Our refund experts specialise in finding unclaimed funds for Australian Businesses and Citizens who have lost track of their accounts, relocated, or passed away. We assist in first verifying the identity of the rightful owner(s) and then assist you with your claim process by helping you with all documentation, preparation, and submitting the claim proposal.

Just like you would hire a solicitor to represent you in court, or a tax professional to assist you with your tax return. We work hard to jump through hoops so that you don’t have to so that you can sit back, rest assured that the whole process has been taken care of and been dealt with right the first time.

It Is Our Responsibility To Locate The Rightful Owners And Re-Unite Them With Their Lost Funds.

We require at least 100 points of ID to first verify a claim to lost monies owing. We then prepare an authority to release for you to sign before we get started, then liaise with the various holding authorities which may may require further information from you to ensure these funds are released successfully. Usually, the funds are released directly into your nominated account, we then invoice you for our fee in finding/recovering these funds. Normally within 6 to 8 weeks of receiving all the correct claim documentation.

What Laws Do We All Have To Abide By?
There are many laws in place that protect you as a consumer and your lost money. It is an offence under the Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorism Financing Act 2006 to give false or misleading information or documentation.

This means that we are bound by law to ensure that we reunite the correct funds with the correct people. We may ask you for extra identification to satisfy this obligation. It also means that we MUST ensure that once refunded, your funds are relocated safely into your preferred bank account.

If I Don’t Choose To Claim These Lost Monies What Happens Then?

That’s a simple answer! The funds will stay (in many cases) in a non – interest-bearing account and essence will remain unclaimed.

Worst of all though, depending on what authority holds the funds, each is different, after a certain period the unclaimed fund will be absorbed into the endless pit of ‘consolidated Government Revenue’.

In other words … the Government gets it, and it’s GONE!!!

FAQ’s

What is lost money?

Lost money is a term used to describe funds that have been unable to be returned to the entity they belong to. It’s easy to end up with lost funds, even the best kept records can sometimes miss something. Have you ever moved house or even opened up a new bank account? Chances are you could have money owing to you.

Where does the money go?

Once the firm you were dealing with has made a reasonable effort to reunite the entity with their lost funds they are then expected to transfer those funds to the government where it waits until the entity steps forward to redeem it. The Australian Government is currently sitting on billions worth of lost money!

How do we locate you?

We locate people/organisations with money owing to them using a range of methods to get in contact ; all of which are legal and ethical. We respect people’s privacy and only use any details provided to government entities in validating people’s or organisation’s IDs and therefore ownership with them to claim lost monies held.

How long will the process to claim my money actually take?

It is hard for us to put a time frame on the process as it because we are dealing with busy government departments and each are unique in their efficiency and requirements. But when we do hear back we are prompt in keeping you informed.

How much is this going to cost me?
Our service does not involve any upfront fees or payments so you don’t have to worry about having to make payments you can’t afford. Our price will vary depending on the amount that needs refunding. But please be aware that you will not have to pay a cent until your money is fully refunded. We don’t get paid unless you do, this minimises your risk and ensures you aren’t hit with fees that you can not afford.
What if I don't want to claim it?

Not everyone wants to claim their lost funds for whatever reason. We offer a service that involves donating your funds to a charity of your choice. Not only is this a feel-good exercise for us, but it is often quite satisfying for our clients, knowing that the funds they didn’t want will proceed for a good cause.

Can I do it myself?

Can and should are two very different words. Just as you wouldn’t represent yourself in court, you shouldn’t try to claim lost money yourself, unless you know how to refund it the correct way. If handled incorrectly, your money can end up in all kinds of trouble. It is better to get it done right.

Why am I being asked for more information?

Government departments often require more identification to prove ownership once the claim has been submitted. Please understand that this is normal and that we endeavour to ensure that your claim is processed as swiftly as possible while adhering to government department specifications and requirements.
