    • PIN 6.14.11 Guidance

      As stated in the Guidance to PIN rule 5.4.7, it is common practice for Insurers to account for their exposures on General Insurance contracts in force by means of an unearned premium provision and (where necessary) a premium deficiency reserve. Where the aggregate of the unearned premium provision and the premium deficiency reserve (both gross of reinsurance) can be shown to be not less than the amount of Premium Liability determined in accordance with section 5.4, an Insurer may use that aggregate as a proxy for Premium Liability for the purposes of recording item 15 on this form.
