Business insurance cover options

Employers’ liability insurance

This is a legal requirement for UK businesses if you have employees and will protect you if an employee becomes ill as a result of working for you.

Public liability insurance

Offers protection if you or your employee injure someone or damage their property while you’re working for them.

Professional indemnity insurance

This protects you from unexpected mistakes that lead to a client losing money, or their reputation being damaged because of your advice, services or designs.

Business interruption

This covers your business income if you can’t trade because your property is damaged.  Some business interruptions can’t be covered, such as unavoidable events like those related to the Covid 19 pandemic.

Other cover

You can also choose to cover tools, stock and equipment or commercial properties that you rent out.
