Common questions about premium audit

A premium audit for business insurance reviews your financial records and operations to determine the correct premium amount for your policy.

Workers’ compensation policies are audited every year. General liability policies are always subject to audit but may be audited less frequently.

Our audit partner will provide you with a checklist and instructions in the audit request letter.

  • Payroll reports
  • 941s
  • Quarterly state unemployment filings

  • Income statements, sales journal, etc.

  • Disbursement ledgers such as check register, general ledger, etc.
  • Certificates of Insurance

The premium audit is a requirement of all insurance companies and is part of your policy conditions. If you do not complete the review, it may result in an Audit Noncompliance Charge of two times the estimated annual premium of your policy.

When your audit is processed, an audit statement is created. This will be mailed directly to you.

This document will show the adjusted premium on your policy as a result of the audit. This statement replaces the audited policy’s declaration page and lists the policy’s risk exposures by classification, rate and final premium.
