Anything that saves time is valuable, so we’ve added options to make Coalition quotes easier for you to present without extra effort. At the agency level, you can choose whether your quotes display:
Commission (on by default)
Broker fees (off by default)
Surplus lines taxes and fees (off by default)
Example display of broker fees & surplus lines taxes and fees:
If you charge broker fees and want those displayed, Coalition makes it easy to display them on all quotations. Broker fees are state-specific, and may use various structures: flat fees, max fees, fees based on premium ranges, and percentage fees.
If you'd like to enable broker fees, please fill out the Excel spreadsheet available below and return to us.
Please note that there are some state-specific broker fee restrictions.
Note: you are responsible for making sure your broker fees comply with state regulations, where applicable.

There's one state-level fee we do not calculate at the moment: the Local Government Policy Tax (LGPT) in the state of Kentucky. For this tax, we note on the quotation, "For KY LGPT tax, ask your broker". The tax amount is left blank, and next to the total amount we say "Total (KY LGPT tax not included)".
