Thomson Reuters Experts to Speak at IAPP Conference


Providing Accounts Payable Professionals Insight into Handling of Unclaimed Property

Experts from the Tax & Accounting business of Thomson Reuters will provide practical information on unclaimed property at the International Accounts Payable Professionals (IAPP) conference. The conference will be held in Orlando, Fla. from April 19-23, 2009.

“A foundational understanding of the ramifications of unclaimed property acts and court rulings is the first step in avoiding audits, fines, and penalties,” said Josiah Osibodu, director, Unclaimed Property Group at Thomson Reuters. “There are risks involved when dealing with unclaimed property,” agreed Kathleen Moyer, senior manager, Unclaimed Property Group at Thomson Reuters. “Fortunately, effective internal controls and best practices can make the process more manageable.”

Osibodu and Moyer will explain unclaimed property laws, state expectations and enforcement, holder obligations, reporting nuances, internal controls, audit handling, fines, penalties, and more during their co-presentation on Unclaimed Property: What You Don’t Know Can Hurt You.

Osibodu, director in the Unclaimed Property Group supporting ONESOURCE™ Property Tax at Thomson Reuters, has extensive experience assisting companies with their multi-state unclaimed property audit defense, voluntary disclosures, compliance reviews, and liability negotiation and settlement. He also assists clients with unclaimed property due diligence reviews during mergers and acquisitions, as well as implementation of policies and procedures.

He is a frequent speaker on unclaimed property topics and has co-authored articles and a book on unclaimed property.
