Why do I Need a License and Permit Bond?

Licenses and permit bonds guarantee that a business will operate according to federal, state, and local regulations and laws. There is a specific type of license and permit bond for each industry requiring one, but all permit bonds protect customers and/or taxpayers from damages.

What do These Bonds Do?

Typically, license and permit bonds protect consumers and/or taxpayers from businesses that would commit fraudulent acts. Bonded and licensed businesses operate legally, as these businesses must obtain bonding before applying for a license or permit. Each bond protects up to a specific dollar amount, which is called the total bond amount. Required total bond amounts vary from industry to industry, and by the size of the business, as well as from state to state.
