Holders of Unclaimed Financial Assets

Note New online services

New online services are available in My Account for businesses to facilitate the remittance of unclaimed financial assets and related payments.

The online services let you make remittances in a Web form or in an XML file and make payments related to these remittances.

End of note

Holders of unclaimed financial assets (UFAs) are persons and organizations that have been unable to find the owner or right-holder of such assets and that:

  • owe an amount to the owner or right-holder; or
  • are holding property on the owner's or right-holder's behalf. 

Remitting UFAs

Holders of UFAs are subject to the Unclaimed Property Act and must remit the unclaimed assets in their possession to us.

If you hold UFAs and you want to know how to remit them, see the Guide for Holders: Unclaimed Financial Assets (BD-81.5.G-V).

Overview of submitting the statement and making the remittance in My Account for businesses

To finalize your UFA remittance:

  • check the property remitted
  • add supporting documents (if applicable)
  • make the required statement
  • submit the statement

If you do not make your payment right after submitting the statement, you can do it later using the payment service for property remittances.

If you do not complete the remittance, your remittance session will remain active and available for 30 days.

Acknowledgment of receipt in My Account for businesses

Once you submit your statement, you will receive a message with a reference number confirming that we received your remittance.

Remittances using the paper form

Holders of no more than 10 UFAs can remit the property using form BD-81.5-V, Statement Concerning Unclaimed Property. Send the form, along with a cheque for the payment related to the UFAs, to:

Direction principale des biens non réclamés
Revenu Québec
C. P. 6500, succursale Place-Desjardins
Montréal (Québec)  H5B 0B6

Payment methods

If you want to make the payment related to your online remittance right away, copy the payment code and choose how you want to pay. The options are:

  • online, using your financial institution's payment service, accessible through either:
    • My Account for businesses, or
    • your financial institution's website (the payment date is the date the transaction is made with the institution)
  • in person at your financial institution or ATM
  • by mail

To make your payment later, use the service for making a payment for an unclaimed property record, then print your acknowledgement of receipt and sign out once your payment is made.

Paying by mail

You can mail us a cheque or money order payable to the Minister of Revenue of Québec. Be sure to sign it and date it for 2023.

Complete the remittance slip and mail it to us with your cheque or money order.


If you remit UFAs by mail and we receive the remittance after the deadline, you will not have to pay any interest right away. We will review the remittance and send you a payment notice (and remittance slip) detailing the total interest due.

Applying for the cancellation or waiver of late-remittance interest

    • a natural disaster (flood or fire),
    • a postal service interruption, 
    • major computer system problems,
    • a serious illness, death or other situation that prevents you from performing your usual duties;
  2. an action attributable to Revenu Québec, such as:
    • an error in the documents provided by Revenu Québec or in the information Revenu Québec communicated verbally or in writing,
    • an undue delay in processing the file;
  3. your inability to pay the late-remittance interest owing, as demonstrated by a complete financial analysis of your situation.
