Florida Financially Responsible Officer Bond (FRO Bond)

What is a Financially Responsible Officer Bond?

A Financially Responsible Officer bond is a type of commercial license surety bond required in Florida. The Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation requires that an individual wishing to become the financially responsible officer for a construction business must provide a $100,000 surety bond. The bond must be maintained for as long as the individual holds the financially responsible officer position. FRO bonds are annually renewable.

What does the Financially Responsible Officer Bond do?

A Financially Responsible Officer is personally responsible for all financial aspects of the business. The FRO bond requirement is meant to provide a form of guarantee that the financial aspects of the business are conducted in a manner adherent to applicable state laws and statutes. In situations where a violation occurs within the financial operations of the business, the potential for a claim on the bond arises.

In the instance of a claim on the FRO bond, if the claim is found to be valid, the Surety would have to pay the unsatisfied claim amount up to the penalty amount of the bond. The Surety would then attempt to collect the amount paid on the claim by the Surety from the financially responsible officer. The financially responsible officer is ultimately responsible for any amount paid on a claim.

How much does a Financially Responsible Officer Bond cost?

Financially Responsible Officer bond rates vary depending on the qualification of the bond applicant/s. The rates are determined based on various factors which include credit and financial standing as well.
