The Ohio Department of Insurance developed a new reporting application to be used beginning with reporting year 2023. The new reporting application was launched for those that wish to start entering 2023 reporting year business. Messaging on the old application has been updated to indicate as such, and also includes a link to the user guide for the new reporting application. Current users of the old application were also automatically given access to the new reporting application.
Information regarding the new application is also on the Department’s website: https://insurance.ohio.gov/companies/surplus-lines/resources/surplus-lines-agencies-brokers.
The user guide for the new reporting application can be downloaded here:
The new application ends the need to mail checks to the TOS. Reporting entities will create invoices from submitted records and remit electronically the tax payment. Nearly 4,000 records have been entered to date with many compliments on the ease of use.
