All small businesses are different.
Small businesses face different risks and your insurance needs to reflect this.
If you make products, you may need cover for machinery and equipment and also product liability cover.
If you give advice, you may need Professional Indemnity insurance.
And if you employ people, you need Employer’s Liability insurance. It’s the law.
What insurance cover do I need?
We’re here to guide you through what you should consider for your business and to get you the best deal from insurers on the market. The cover you need could include:
- Material Damage – to the property of the business including contents and buildings.
- Business Interruption – covering financial loss following an insured event resulting in the business being unable to trade.
- Employer’s Liability – as a UK business employing staff you are required to have Employers Liability insurance to provide cover should an employee make a claim against you following an injury in the workplace.
- Public Liability – providing cover against claims made by members of the public who have sustained an injury or damage to their property in connection with your business.
- Products Liability – cover following a claim against you arising from a product supplied by you.
- Goods in Transit – cover can be included for damage to property whilst in transit to and from customers’ premises.
- Legal Expenses – legal defence cover including employment disputes and compensation awards, tax and VAT investigations and contract disputes.
While some insurance is for your peace of mind, some is a legal necessity. If you have employees, for example, you are legally required to have Employer’s Liability insurance or risk a penalty of up to £2,500 per day.
