Remuneration and Fees
Cregan Kelly O'Brien - Insurances are remunerated by a professional fee for time spent and expertise used in seeking best terms, advice, product and product provider for your specific needs. We are usually remunerated by commission received from a product producer for work involved production of a submission, the placing of an order and the finalising of a product with them on your behalf. An administration fee may also charged for the activity involved in the arrangement or renewal of a policy and also any alterations that take place during the period of or at termination of cover. Commissions and Fees are deemed fully earned when a cover is arranged and any return of premium from insurers will be returned to you net of commissions and charges. The level of remuneration received from product producers can vary between 0% and 25% of the premium paid. It is for this reason that the level of fee charged can vary. Fees are charged to ensure that we can maintain the standards of service to which we aspire.

We will always clearly document to you any fees we charge you for our services
Where any risk or product falls outside our standard fee terms, we will advise you accordingly in advance and an hourly rate may be charged. Our basic hourly rate is €200 for Directors, Managers, Senior Account Handlers and Consultants and €100 for support staff. In determining the rate and any additional charges, factors such as specialist skills, complexity, risk and urgency will be taken into account. You have the option to pay for our services in full by means of an agreed fee which would be greater than the normal fee structure outlined above and in such circumstances no commission would be taken by us from the Insurance Company.
As a Credit Intermediary, the company can arrange loans in the form of insurance premium finance facilities. A charge of up to 3% of the amount of the loan will apply.
