What Are The Advantages Of Owning An Insurance Company?
A captive insurance company is a powerful financial and risk management vehicle. Owning a CIC provides improved risk management to a business, related businesses or a professional practice. A CIC is also a powerful asset protection vehicle as assets in a well- structured CIC are inaccessible to creditors.
Successful insurance companies accumulate significant reserves to insure the risks for which they issue policies. Business owners who own their own insurance companies are better positioned to accumulate and protect significant wealth for the future.
In addition to insuring risks for its customers, one of the primary objectives of any insurance company is to build up significant reserves for the future. And, insurance companies enjoy many tax advantages as they accumulate reserves. Captive insurance companies are no different. When a business owner sets up a captive insurance company to formally insure risk, he or she also benefits by being able to accumulate wealth in a more tax efficient vehicle. Parent companies pay tax deductible premiums to their captive insurance companies. And, premiums paid to a “small” insurance company making an 831 (b) election are taxed at 0%. “Small” insurance company is defined as collecting annual premiums of $1.2 million or less. The result is a remarkably efficient vehicle to accumulate wealth for the future.
