What does an Arkansas subcontractor license bond guarantee? 

Arkansas Code Annotated Section 17-25-404 requires individuals file a $10,000 surety bond before being licensed as a contractor in the state, which includes subcontractors. The official form is titled the “$10,000 Surety Bond” but is also known as the “CLB subcontractor license bond” or just “subcontractor bond." By filing this bond, subcontractors agree to comply with all terms of the Arkansas Code Annotated and all Contractors Licensing Board rules and regulations. If a bonded subcontractor fails to do so, their issuing surety company will pay valid claims to harmed parties up to the full $10,000 bond amount, which they must reimburse.
