Florida’s Seminole County requires a surety bond, also known as a Florida Seminole County License Bond, in order to obtain any kind of business license.
Unlike insurance, this bond protects the obligee, in this case Seminole County, rather than the principal/bond holder, which in this case is the business owner. The bond protects the county against all loss or damage occasioned by the negligence of the business owner. If the business owner failed to comply with the business regulations of Seminole County, a claim can be made on the bond which the surety company (the company issuing the bond) must pay out if settled. However, the business owner must then repay the surety for any losses incurred due to the claim.
The amount required of a Florida Seminole County License Bond is $10,000 but the cost to obtain this bond will only be a small percentage of this bond amount.
More information regarding Seminole County’s licensing requirements can be found on their website.
