Quotation Of Rates Incusive?...

The annual premium rate is calculated on the basis that the company receives the annual premium in advance, i.e. at the beginning of each policy year. Payment of premiums at monthly or quarterly intervals means a loss of interest to the office (because it is receiving the money later) and extra expense.

Quarterly or monthly premium rates are therefore slightly higher than annual rates; with most companies, monthly payment involves an extra cost of 3-5%.

Regardless of the size of the policy and the amount of the premium, most companies now make a fixed annual charge on each policy, known as a policy fee.

This may range from £23 to as high as £2112 per annum on some policies. The policy fee is to cover the unavoidable office and administration costs, which do not vary much whatever type of policy is involved. In the examples quoted throughout this website, the policy fee is always included in the quoted rates.
