If I qualify to use a bond substitute in lieu of a surety bond, what documentation do I have to provide to the department?
(1) Semiannual financial statements required. A licensee that maintains a bond substitute must submit semiannually to the director year-to-date financial statements prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, including at a minimum a statement of assets and liabilities and a profit and loss statement.
(2) More frequent financial reporting. The director may require that financial reports be submitted more frequently if past financial reports have been prepared incorrectly or were misleading or if there is substantial risk that the licensee will violate the bond substitute standard.
(3) Additional information to be filed. The director may require other documents, agreements and information deemed necessary to properly evaluate and ensure that the licensee remains in compliance with this section.
(4) Failure to file financial statements as required. The director may require a licensee that fails to file its financial statements under subsection (1) of this section to obtain a surety bond within thirty days of that failure.
