How to lodge returns (including nil returns)




Claiming unclaimed money – for institutions


Although unclaimed money is provided to ASIC, some institutions remain the first point of contact for consumers wanting to claim those funds. Once satisfied that the consumer is entitled to the unclaimed money, the institution will make a claim to ASIC on behalf of the entitled person for the return of those funds.

If you are an institution and want to make a claim, go to:


Unclaimed money reports


In accordance with section 8(2)(g) of the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (Cth), ASIC publishes full reports of unclaimed money records that we routinely provide in response to FOI requests.

Please note these are very large files and will be updated monthly.

If you are searching for unclaimed money to claim yourself, see 'Finding unclaimed money - for consumers' below.
