We previously reported on the NAIC’s inquiry into the potentially abusive use of captives to avoid certain accounting rules. As part of that inquiry, the NAIC’s Financial Condition (E) Committee’s Captives and Special Purpose Vehicle Use Subgroup has called for comments on its white paper titled Captives and Special Purpose Vehicles. Comments are due by the close of business on November 16, 2012. The white paper describes some disagreement among different states on issues relating to captives. The end of the comment period is shortly before the NAIC’s scheduled fall meeting.
