Surety Bond Cost in Massachusetts

A wide array of businesses in Massachusetts are required to get a surety bond– as a part of their licensing process or for executing specific projects.

It’s important to differentiate between the Massachusetts surety bond amount you are required to post, and the surety bond cost that you have to pay. The amount set by the authority requiring the bond functions as the penal sum of the bond. If you transgress your obligations under the bond and a claim is proven against you, this is the maximum sum for compensation of affected parties.

The surety bond cost is only a percentage of this penal sum, called the premium, which is usually between 1% and 4% for applicants qualifying for the standard bonding market. For example, if you are a Class II auto dealer, meaning you want to sell used cars, you’ll be asked to post a $25,000 Massachusetts surety bond. However, you may have to pay only a few hundred dollars to get bonded.

Your actual bond cost depends on a variety of personal and business factors. When you apply for a bond, the surety needs to examine these factors and assess the strength and stability of your business. The less risky it is to underwrite your bond, the less you will pay for the bond.

Some of the most important criteria in this assessment include:

  • Personal credit score - very important

  • Financial statements

  • Assets and liquidity

  • Your experience in the industry

Our surety bond cost calculator, which you can find in the right sidebar, can give you an estimation of your bond cost depending on your circumstances. When you submit a complete application, we will send you an exact quote shortly.

Bad Credit Program

Getting bonded in Massachusetts on the standard bonding market is not complicated. However, for bad credit applicants, getting the Massachusetts surety bond that they need can be difficult and costly because of the perceived risk for sureties guaranteeing for them.

Here at Bryant Surety Bonds, we want to deliver the same seamless experience to our clients with not-so-perfect credit. That’s why we are running a Bad Credit Surety Bond Program in partnership with our trusted and outstanding surety partners.

Thanks to this program, bad credit applicants can get bonded at slightly higher rates, between 5% and 15%. As the risk involved in bonding them is bigger, the higher premiums are there to compensate for it. Nevertheless, this is a great opportunity with businesses with problematic finances to obtain the bond they need, and have the chance to improve their financial stats over time.

Massachusetts License & Permit Bonds

If you’re running a business that is required to go through a licensing process with a state, local, or city authority, you might be asked to provide a license and permit bond to obtain the right to operate legally. Depending on the industry you’re in, there might be licensing and bonding rules that apply for the whole country, or you might have to comply with local or city requirements.

The government authorities that require the bond aim to safeguard the interests of the general public, by asking for this extra layer of protection. Your Massachusetts surety bond can be used as a compensation on proven claims for any financial harm you impose on your clients through unlawful or fraudulent actions.

The most popular Massachusetts license and permit bonds include:

Obligee: Licensing authority of your city or town

Bond amount: $25,000

  • Driver training school bond

Obligee: Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles

Bond amount: Between $10,000 and $50,000, depending on the number of locations

Obligee: Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration

Bond amount: $75,000

Expiration date: Coinciding with the licensing year
