Yes, however, it is not an actual surcharge. Prior insurance is a rating factor and determines what rating tier you are put into. It can be based on time with the other company, your bodily injury limits with the other company and if you've ever had any lapses in insurance.

a supplier offers a discount for prompt payment. this is considered financing the customer the "discount amount" for the additional days of the net due date when the customer does not take the early pay discount. so when the customer pays the full amount on the net due date, the amount above the discount amount is considered interest revenue. it is treated as such on the financial statements.
