    • premium advance is based on 75% of limit of insurance
    • should select high enough limit to cover large reported values
    • limitations: small insureds may not have sufficient accounting system procedures and sophistication to generate reports; insurer wouldn't want to use this endorsement on small insured since premium isn't large enough to warrant added expense of processing those reports
