Alcohol beverage or tobacco bond cost
The State of Florida’s Department of Business and Professional Regulation requires professionals involved in the sale, distribution and/or manufacturing of tobacco or alcohol to be bonded. The required bond amounts vary depending on the applicant’s business classification. To ensure that you obtain the correct amount of bond coverage, check with the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation prior to bonding.
These bonds are subject to underwriting, which means the price you’ll pay for your bond depends not only on your required bond amount but also on a review of your personal credit report. Even with lower credit, our team of dedicated experts will work hard to get you bonded for the best available rate.
Why this bond
The alcoholic beverages and tobacco bond in Florida ensures that principals (alcohol and tobacco professionals) pay all taxes owed to the state. If the principal fails to pay his or her taxes, the bond protects the state from financial loss. By posting this bond, the principal also agrees to abide by all rules, laws and regulations found in the Florida Statutes, specifically the Beverage Laws in Chapters 561-568, the Cigarette Laws in Chapter 210 and the Tobacco Product Laws in Chapter 210.
