Mississippi Surety Bond Types

Catfish aquaculture farms in Mississippi produce the majority of farm-raised catfish consumed in the United States. For this reason, the Mississippi state government requires certain businesses and individuals to secure surety bonds to ensure they follow the state’s fisheries and wildlife rules and regulations.

The Mississippi state government, as well as other state governments, requires businesses and individuals to secure surety bonds for a variety of other reasons as well. Generally, surety bonds provide protection to consumers and businesses alike. Surety bonds are usually issued to businesses and individuals to ensure they follow local, state and federal laws. The business or individual generally has to secure a bond before being issued a license to operate legally within a specified municipality or state. If a bonded business or individual fails to honor the stipulations specified in the bond, then the business or individual is responsible for paying all incurred fines to the state, which could possibly be the bond’s full value.

Surety Bond Definitions in Mississippi

Before you open a business in Mississippi, be sure to check both local and state rules and regulations regarding bonding in your industry. Other industries in Mississippi that require surety bonds include businesses in the alcohol, tobacco or gaming industries. While some types of businesses may not be required to be bonded, business owners can still take advantage of all the great benefits surety bonds offer, especially the added protection. Business owners can purchase bonds that guard them against unfortunate events such as employee theft. Additionally, potential customers feel more confident working with a company that has bonded itself to ensure proper business ethics, and bonding can provide this additional sense of security.

Before applying for a bond, make sure you have as much information about your business’s financial and credit history as possible. The rate you will be charged for your bond depends on your credit score, among other similar financial factors. Surety companies aim to ensure that a business is financially stable before issuing the owner a bond since the owner could potentially have to pay retribution up to the bond’s full amount. After submitting the application, getting a quote back from the surety company might only take a few days.
