What is Business Insurance

Business insurance, also referred to as commercial insurance, encompasses a range of insurance options tailored specifically for businesses.

Various forms of insurance offer protection against the diverse risks encountered by businesses. Some commonly encountered types of business insurance are Public Liability Insurance and Professional Indemnity Insurance. Moreover, there exist additional coverage options for aspects such as your business premises, tools, and equipment, as well as protection in the event of personal accidents or illnesses, business interruptions, theft, and more.

Whether you operate as a sole trader or manage a small-to-medium enterprise (SME), you have the option to obtain a singular business insurance policy or combine multiple products to cater to the specific needs of your business. This approach ensures that you are safeguarded in the event of unforeseen circumstances that could have a detrimental impact on your operations, reputation, and cash flow.

When looking for coverage for your business there are several types of insurance coverage to consider:

When selecting insurance coverage for your business, it's important to assess the nature of your operations and identify the areas that pose the highest risks. A comprehensive business insurance pack can provide coverage for your business premises, contents, and financial losses resulting from insured interruptions. By carefully choosing the right combination of business insurance options, you can ensure that your business is adequately protected against potential risks and threats.

What is typically covered by Business Insurance

It encompasses the expenses associated with compensation payments and the legal fees linked to such circumstances.

  • Professional indemnity insurance 

    Professional indemnity insurance protects you against legal expenses and any compensation costs that may arise if you face lawsuits from clients dissatisfied with the services provided, resulting in a negative outcome. It serves as a safeguard for your business against negligence or violations of duty, such as unintentionally offering misleading or inaccurate advice.

What are the Benefits

For certain individuals, business insurance may seem like an additional expense, particularly when starting a business and dealing with various financial obligations. One might question the 

likelihood of being involved in a legal dispute or assume that their existing home and contents insurance will provide adequate coverage in case of any unfortunate incidents.

Regrettably, this assumption doesn't always hold true, as accidents can occur unexpectedly. Hence, business insurance proves to be an invaluable asset. It offers several significant 

advantages, including:

  • Public Liability business insurance: Protects your business against claims made by third parties for injury, death, loss, or damage to their property.

  • Management Liability business insurance: Safeguards your business and personal assets from alleged or actual mismanagement, misconduct, or violations of legislation.

  • Professional Indemnity business insurance: Covers claims arising from breaches of professional duty towards clients, such as providing incorrect advice or making mistakes concerning a

      customer's account.

  • Product Liability business insurance: Responds to claims if your products are found responsible for causing harm, injury, or financial losses.

  • Employee Dishonesty business insurance: Provides coverage if any equipment, stock, or cash is stolen by an employee.

  • Property/Goods in Transit business insurance: Offers protection in case of theft during the transportation of business equipment or goods.

Theft business insurance: Ensures the safeguarding of your business assets against theft in general.

Do I need business insurance?

  • Every business is different, so you should decide if you need insurance, and then choose the cover that's best for you.

  • You can add extras to some business insurance (including Public Liability) to cover you for common incidents you might be concerned about like theft, vandalism, fire and more.

What's the difference between Public Liability Insurance and Professional Indemnity Insurance?

Public Liability Insurance protects you in case of damage or injury caused by your staff or on your business premises. Professional Indemnity protects you in case of damage caused due to your negligent or mistaken professional advice or services.
