Vermont Enacts Annual Captive Housekeeping Bill

27 March 2018

  • New law gives captives an additional two weeks to pay premium taxes
  • Minor changes made to branch captive and RRG language

Vermont Governor Phil Scott signed H.694 into law last week, tweaking the domicile’s captive insurance statutes in what has become an annual “housekeeping” exercise for the state.

“Vermont always proactively fine-tunes its captive insurance legislation,” says JLT Insurance Management (USA) LLC CEO Guy Ragosta. “Adding two weeks to the due date both for paying premium taxes and filing the Vermont Captive Annual Report is probably the one revision affecting the most captives.”

Other changes include adjustments to the risk retention governance standards, regulatory enhancements to branch captives and minor technical updates that streamline processes, such as eliminating language that refers to repealed laws.
