As we have discussed in previous blogticles, captive insurance can be a viable method to more efficiently protect against certain risks under various circumstances.  For discussion on these topics please see our blogticles on AdvisorFYI from the week of August 30th, Monday through Wednesday, Alternative Risk Transfer BasicsRisk and Self-Insurance, andCaptive Insurance Company Introduction.

In addition, we have discussed in previous blogticles the ability to deduct prepaid expenses for certain items, both from an accrual basis and cash receipts and disbursements method taxpayer approach.  One such class of deductions that is generally allowable is, “insurance premiums against fire, storm, theft, accident, or other similar losses in the case of a business, and rental for the use of business property.”

See generally our blogticles from November entitled, Year End Tax Planning: Pre-Paid Insurance Expense For Accrual Accounting Taxpayers, and Year End Tax Planning: Pre-Paid Expenses For Cash Accounting Taxpayers.

Read this entire set of articles starting at AdvisorFYI.
