Remittance Procedure for Financial Institutions and Other Holders
You must remit unclaimed financial assets to us once a year, no later than three months after the end of the fiscal period during which the asset became unclaimed.
The following must be included in the remittance:
- the Statement Concerning Unclaimed Property (BD-81.5-V), duly completed
- a cheque payable to the Minister of Revenue of Québec
Description of unclaimed financial assets
We suggest that you consult the document Data Interchange Format for Financial Institutions, Pension Plan Administrators and Other Holders and use the method described in the document to transmit descriptions of unclaimed financial assets. However, we accept descriptions of unclaimed financial assets in a Microsoft Excel file.
Regardless of the medium used, please provide the information described in the document Data Interchange Format for Financial Institutions, Pension Plan Administrators and Other Holders.
We use the data transmitted to search for owners and other interested parties and remit property to them. You must inform us of the date of birth and the social insurance number of the owner or other interested party if you know this information.
Transmission of the holder's declaration and the cheque
The holder's signed declaration and the cheque payable to the Minister of Revenue of Québec must be sent by registered or priority mail, or by specialized courier to:
Direction principale des biens non réclamés
Service des produits financiers

Transmission of the description of unclaimed financial assets
You can enclose a CD-ROM with the description of the unclaimed financial assets along with your holder's declaration and your cheque. The file must be password protected. You must call us to provide the password.
You can also submit the description through the Service de transfert sécurisé de fichiers of the Centre de services partagés du Québec. However, you must first register for the service.
