1.      Can you have an admitted and non-admitted company on the same policy or do separate policies have to be issued?


2.      When an account is written on a fee basis and part of the account involves a surplus lines placement(s), what is the methodology that members use to calculate the amount of fee attributable to the Surplus Lines policy(ies) in order to calculate surplus lines taxes and stamping fees?  Or, do members exclude surplus lines policies under a fee agreement?


3.      How do members calculate taxes on a foreign and US based policy?
