Do you mean a captive agency where the agent only sells one carrier, or do you mean Captive insurance companies (Closely Held Insurance Companies) where an insurance company is set to insure its creator (such as the company that insures your UPS package is a captive owned by UPS)?

Captives can get very complex but when used in the right situation is one of the most powerful and eloquent planning tools available. There is a lot to go over and may be too much for a thread. I would love to chat with you about them (im me) or if you have specific questions i will do my best here.

Captive insurance company is about setting up your own small insurance company to fulfill the needs of your business. It would be a subsidiary of another insurance company. the advantage of starting a captive insurance company is that it would help you in saving taxes.



Secondly, you can customize the product to suit your needs. Moreover, every premium dollar that you earn after paying the claims would go into your book of profit.



The captive insurance company also helps the business houses to save towards the premium that it pays to the insurance company for the business insurance policies. Companies with lots of exposures specially benefit from this arrangement.

So what does the holding company get in return?

People may be against captive insurance because the do not understand it. What you have to understand is that almost every fortune 500 company has one and that they are not some scam. The IRS has put safe harbors in the Internal revenue code for captives, but that does not mean that they are good for everyone. Here is a list of some pros and cons:



Cons:



High Cost: A captive is a true and functioning insurance company requiring actuaries, accountants, lawyers, Claims adjusters, Policy services, etc. Although you can create a captive on-shore (there are some states that have very favorable captives laws...such as Nevada) most are created off-shore (with all assets held ON-SHORE and filing US taxes...don't forget favorable taxation is one of the benefits of a captive). Creating and managing an offshore corporation has its own set of complexities and cost. All these reasons can attribute to the cost of running and creating a captive.



Pros:



Favorable tax treatment

Direct access to reinsurance markets

possible insurance savings

unique estate, business, and insurance planning (see the material I sent you)

can be run as a profit center for your business and generate significant income.





This is just off the top of my head....let me know if you need more.

One of the biggest reasons that companies get a captive insurer is because it saves them money in premiums. They don't have to pay as much toward premiums and the premiums even stay within the company!

5 Tinder do's and don'ts at a dating



Last month we revisited the Solo ish archives and highlighted nine tips to boost your online dating service game. You're rocking these athletes, i believe, and can be readyfor more. And while it might seem innocuous, Golden thinks it gets you thin air. "It's such a silly quandary, she says. Because including the "best suited" Answers don't mean much until you've met in person and can judge no matter whether you have chemistry. "because someone's perfect on paper, i am not saying you're going to mesh well, fantastic adds.



I can confirm this one consequently.



be consistent. Golden meets with singles who will say such as "Wednesday's my getting to know app day, It doesn't actually work that way, older says,you simply can't be on for 16 hours a day, She notes but adds that if someone continues to spends 30 minutes a day swiping and russian sexy girls messaging, Monday from Friday, may well yield them one date a week.



After three to four days of talking, plan a date or move on. You have to do more than message consistently to make dating apps work for you. That person who messages slowly and steadily, Asking about built, personal week, Your weekend over many months or weekends without asking you out? It's not that your answers aren't riveting. hangover remedy,hangover remedy wants a pen pal. "They're on there to improve their ego, senior says,these companies dating app recreationalists; They'rejust on it for video game,



Golden recalls messaging with one guy, on the part of a client,Andin an test and nudge him to ask her (client) around, Golden said something about what fun she was in person. He responded by saying that he's never met anyonefrom an app and andhe's never going to. "i absolutely hate my job, She remembers him saying, "And this is an excellent way to spend my day,



when you are scheduling that date,keep in the app. When someone asks for a phone number in an effort to convert the conversation to texting and then schedule a date, there might be a high drop off rate. which means"Keep it in the app until you're booked, Golden signifies.
