How much does a talent agency bond cost in Florida?
A talent agency bond in Florida costs $100 for a full 2-year term. Because talent agency bonds must expire on May 31 of even years, your initial term may be shorter than 2 years. Therefore, the cost of the bond is prorated based on the length of the bond term and you could end up paying as little as $50.

Why do I need a Florida talent agency bond?
The Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation requires talent agencies to post $5,000 surety bonds.
Florida talent agency bonds ensure that principals (talent agencies) comply with all of the laws and regulations governing the industry in Florida. If the agency fails to adhere to these terms, the bond protects harmed parties from financial loss up to the full bond amount. The agency is responsible for reimbursing the surety for damages paid out.
What’s the fine print?
Talent agency bonds in Florida expire on May 31st of every even year. Because of this, your bond premium could be prorated depending on when you buy your bond. Our team of surety experts works hard to get you bonded according to your specific needs.
The surety can cancel the bond at any time by mailing written notice of intention to cancel to the Secretary of the Department of Business and Professional Regulation 30 days prior to the effective termination date.
