Like in other states, Florida surety bonds are required in many different cases. In all of them they provide a guarantee for compliance with state regulations or contractual obligations. In essence, surety bonds are a three-party agreement between an obligee that requires the bond, a principal who needs to obtain it, and a surety that provides it.

Florida Surety Bonds Cost

The amount of your Florida surety bond depends on the field in which you operate. For license bonds, the bonding amounts are usually fixed, while for contract bonds they will be specified in the construction project requirements. In some cases, the bond amounts are the same across the country, such as the $75,000 freight broker bond required by the FMCSA.

As for your surety bond premium, it depends on a few individual factors, such as your credit score, industry experience and personal and business financials. The better these stats are, the lower the bond cost will be. If you qualify for the standard Florida surety bond market, your premium will be between 1%-4% of the total bond cost. You’ll be required to get bonded on a yearly basis.

If you have less-than-perfect credit, or tax liens, bankruptcies or civil judgments, don’t get disheartened. Bryant Surety Bonds operates a Bad Credit Surety Bond Program, which allows even high-risk applicants to get bonded and start their business. You will have to pay a slightly higher premium, between 5%-15%, in order to compensate for the higher risk involved. This is a great opportunity to get your Florida surety bond even with problematic finances.

To get an initial ballpark estimate, you can use our surety bond calculator in the sidebar on the right. If you want more details about how your surety bond cost is determined, please consult our Surety Bond Cost page.
