We underwrite Arizona license and permit bonds, which businesses need when they apply for a license in the state of Arizona.

Arizona License & Permit Bonds

All states require that certain businesses get licensed and bonded. Some, such as auto dealers and freight brokers, are required to get licensed and bonded in every state, while others are only required in certain states. The amounts of license bonds also differs from state to state, though there are exceptions to this too.

The state of Arizona also requires many of its businesses to obtain an Arizona license bond before they can legally operate. These bonds work to protect the public, and the state, from business malpractice, and guarantee financial compensations to those who suffer harm from businesses that do not comply with regulations.

Such bonds include the Arizona auto dealer bond, the Arizona mortgage broker bond as well as Freight broker bonds, all of which are among the most popular bonds in the state. We underwrite all other types of Arizona license bonds as well.

Surety Bond Cost in Arizona

Surety bond cost is determined by sureties, on the basis of a bond’s amount. The bond amount is the penal sum of the bond - i.e., the maximum amount of compensation that a surety will extend to obligees in the case of a legitimate claim against the bond.

The cost, or premium, of Arizona surety bonds depends on their amount. The cost of a surety bond is almost always a fraction of the total bond amount. The cost of an Arizona auto dealer bond, for example, is only a small percentage of the total amount of the bond, which is $100,000. Other required bond amounts are smaller, such as Arizona mortgage broker bonds which range from $10,000-$15,000. There, too, the cost of the bond is only a fraction of the whole amount.

So how high or low is this percentage? When assessing surety bond applicants, sureties take into account their financial status. The foremost criteria that they use in determining the rate for a bond is personal credit score. They also look at other financial factors such as:

  • Personal financial statements

  • Business financial statements

  • Industry experience

  • Other financially-related factors

Typically, rates for applicants who have a stellar or high credit score are between 1%-4% of the total bond amount. How much exactly depends on the particularities of each application.

Applicants with a low credit score or scant credit record, on the other hand, may have trouble getting bonded. Many sureties reject these applicants, because they perceive them as high-risk. Bryant Surety Bonds has long worked with a number of highly professional sureties in designing a program that makes it possible for such applicants to get bonded and stay in business.

Our Bad Credit Surety Bond Program is the result of this effort, making it possible for applicants to obtain Arizona surety bonds. Respectively, rates are higher - between 5%-15% of the total amount - because of the higher risk when bonding such applicants.

Regardless of whether applicants receive standard market rates or special rates, all our bonds are always backed by the same highly professional companies. Furthermore, we always try to find the lowest and most competitive rates for our applicants.

You can use our surety bond cost calculator on the right to make an initial calculation of what your Arizona surety bond cost premium might look like. If you want to get a precise and entirely free quote, simply follow the application link and submit your application with all relevant details attached.

Our Surety Bond Cost page is also a great resource for you to consider! It contains everything you need to know about how premiums are determined and how applicants can lower their rates over time.
