In Indiana there are a number of vehicle merchandising surety bond requirements. The Office of the Secretary of State requires a $25,000 bond for each of the 10 different license types: automobility dealer, automobile auctioneer, automotive salvage recycler, converter manufacturer, dealer (most common), distributor, manufacturer, transfer dealer, watercraft dealer, and wholesale dealer.

Financial Services Bonds

Many different financial services occupations require bonding in Indiana. Collection agencies, licensed currency exchanges, debt management companies, insurance agents, and loan brokers all need surety bonds in Indiana.
