Step 4: Submit Your Report and Remit Funds Due

Submit Report

The submission of a holder report can vary based on how the report was created. Holders can upload their NAUPA file directly to North Carolina via Holder Report, a free electronic submission solution.  Please note – unable to accept HDE formatted files. For holders using UPExchange or UPExpress, such reports are electronically delivered to North Carolina by ETM. For holders utilizing reporting software other than UPExchange, the required electronic file submission must be submitted via Holder Report or mailed to our office on an electronic data storage device (eg. CD, USB Flashdrive, etc.). 

Remit Funds Due

For reports submitted via Holder Report,  holders have the option to submit a Holder Payment online.   Holders, regardless of how the report is submitted, may remit a payment via ACH, Wire, or Check. For reports submitted via Holder Report,  a copy of the ACH or Wire Transmittal confirmation should be Uploaded once the Report ID confirmation email is received. If remitting a check, the check should be made payable to “North Carolina Department of State Treasurer.”  Reports and remittances should be mailed together to:
NC Department of State Treasurer
Unclaimed Property Division
3200 Atlantic Avenue
Raleigh, NC 27604-1668 

Record Retention

Owner names, addresses, social security or tax identification numbers, dates of birth, driver license numbers, and e-mail addresses of the owners must be included on the submitted report, if known by the holder. N.C.G.S. § 116B-73(a) requires that you maintain all records containing information required to be included in the report for 5 years after you file the report for all records prior to July 16, 2012.  For reports filed after July 16, 2012, the holder must retain the supporting documentation for 5 years after filing the report.
