DEFINITION of 'Value Reporting Form'

An insurance form that is used to provide the variable coverage amounts needed by commercial businesses that carry irregular inventories throughout the year. The value reporting form is used to report inventory values periodically to the insurance company, which in turn adjusts the amount of coverage to reflect current merchandise values. Using a value reporting form can help businesses avoid being over or underinsured.
