The bill defines a dormant captive insurance company as one that (1) did not contract for any direct premium or reinsurance premium for a full calendar year, (2) is not obligated as an insurance company under any contract of insurance or reinsurance during any year it is a dormant captive, and (3) has provided written notice to the Commissioner of its intent to be a dormant captive. Among various provisions, the bill requires a dormant captive to possess and maintain $25,000 in unimpaired capital and surplus (or such other amount determined by the Commissioner), and exempts a dormant captive from the payment of premium tax, the filing of annual statements, the preparing of audited financial statements, and obtaining statements of actuarial opinion.
