Sales of extended service contracts and warranties on towables and motorized RVs are a critical source of revenue for RV dealers. Unfortunately, this revenue is generally taxed as ordinary income. Effective long-term management of required reserves and surplus funds is necessary to getting the most out of this revenue stream.
Darnall Sikes Wealth Partners offers RV dealers a better, more tax-sensitive dealer reinsurance solution. Warranty revenue flows into the dealer’s own reinsurance company. Required reserves are invested according to an Investment Policy Statement provided by a trustee. As premiums earn out, they can be transferred to a separate surplus account managed directly by the dealer as trustee with greater investment flexibility.
Our reinsurance program stands out. Our custom-built reinsurance solutions give RV dealers the ideal combination of investment flexibility and streamlined management. We will help you determine your long-term wealth goals and then plan and manage your reinsurance cash flow to meet them.
