Commercial Bonds

License and permit bonds are required by certain federal, state, or municipal governments as prerequisites to receiving a license or permit to engage in certain business activities. These bonds function as a guaranty from a Surety to a government and its constituents (Obligee) that a company or individual (Principal) will comply with an underlying statute, state law, municipal ordinance, or regulation.
