How can we help?

Our insurance

From public liability insurance for injury and property damage, to employers’ liability cover for your staff and freelancers, we offer the core covers you need, plus specific options for a range of risks, such as professional indemnity, or protection for your equipment.

Your business

Our cover options are as varied as the businesses on your local high street. That’s what makes life interesting. We insure tradesmen, like builders and plumbers, but also shops, restaurants, niche businesses and professionals, pubs and many more. We can even cover you for e-commerce, with our online retail insurance.

Just for landlords

Landlords need insurance as much as the next business, if not more. Whether it’s your first buy-to-let or a commercial property, tailor our landlord insurance options to get the protection you need. It’s flexible cover, with options for things like buildings, contents and loss of rent.

Meet our customers

From clever cupcakes to burlesque beauties

The very best of Simply Business comes from our customers.

Whether that’s a cupcake shop in Sussex or a plumber up in Leicester, they’re the people to learn from if you’re thinking of starting up, changing track or working out your business insurance. We asked our customers to tell their stories, and just what ‘tailored insurance’ means to them.

Steve, our billboard star

Creating campaigns with our customers

We’re proud to be insuring the people who are building Britain’s economy – the hairdressers, the bookkeepers and the painters and decorators like Steve.

We’re also proud to be featuring our customers in our campaigns. Real people, running real businesses. After all, it’s our customers that make us who we are.

With business owners like Steve painting a brighter future for Britain, we thought we’d turn the spotlight on them, setting up billboards and adverts across the UK. Have you spotted Steve yet?
