The idea of an audit doesn’t appeal to most people.
Even the simple word “audit” has a negative connotation. After all, what good could possibly come out of an audit? Does the IRS ever give money back on an audit?
Fortunately, an insurance premium audit might be the one type of audit in this world that doesn’t necessarily mean doom and gloom. Instead, premium audits are designed to guarantee that business owners only pay the premium they truly owe rather than a premium based on the estimated figures provided when their insurance policy was issued.
While this could mean that your premium will increase if information was missing or your actual payroll or sales figures were more than the estimated figures initially provided, it could also mean more money in your pocket if those figures were less than the estimated amounts.
