10.4 Annual and Quarterly Reporting Requirements

A. Captive insurance companies shall annually file a statement of condition as provided in R.I. Gen. Laws § 27-12-1; provided, however, that the commissioner may, upon written request of the captive insurance company, allow a pure or subsidiary captive insurance company or industrial insured captive insurance company to file a modified statement.

1. The modified statement shall be prepared using generally accepted accounting principles, unless the Director approves the use of statutory accounting principles, with any useful or necessary modifications or adaptations thereof required or approved or accepted by the Director for the type of insurance and kinds of insurers to be reported upon, and as supplemented by additional information required by the commissioner. The form of report shall be that prescribed by the Director as "Captive Annual Statement -- Subsidiary (Pure) or Industrial Insured."

2. Any subsidiary or pure captive insurance company may make written application for filing the required report on a fiscal year-end provided, however, that its parent organization is on the same fiscal year end. If an alternative reporting date is granted:

a. The annual report is due sixty (60) days after the fiscal year-end; and

b. In order to provide sufficient detail to support the premium tax return, the subsidiary or pure captive insurance company shall file prior to March 1 of each year for each calendar year-end, pages 1, 2, 3, and 5 of the "Captive Annual Statement -- Subsidiary (Pure) or Industrial Insured," verified by oath of two of its executive officers.
