Our Remuneration/Commission/Fees

Colleran Auctioneers & Insurance Brokers act as intermediary between you, the consumer and the product provider with whom we place your business.


Pursuant to provision 4.58A of the Central Bank of Ireland’s September 2019 Addendum to the Consumer Protection Code, all intermediaries must make available in their public offices, or on their website if they have one, a summary of the details of all arrangements for any fee, commission, other reward or remuneration provided to the intermediary which it has agreed with its product producers.

Remuneration is the payment earned by the intermediary for work undertaken on behalf of both the provider and the consumer.  The amount of remunerations generally directly related to the value of the products sold.

Commission is payment that may be earned by an intermediary for work undertaken for both provider and consumer. There are different types of remuneration and different commission models.

Single Commission Model: where payment is made to the intermediary shortly after the sale is completed and is based on a percentage of the premium paid.

Renewal Commission Model: further payments at intervals are paid throughout the life span of the product.

General Insurance Products are products, such as motor, home, travel, health, retail or liability insurance, typically subject to a single or standard commission model, based on the amount of premium charged for the insurance product.
