Building your artists' insurance policy
You may need several types of cover that reflect the unique work you do. With Simply Business, you can build an insurance policy that meets your individual requirements. These covers should help you get started:
Public liability insurance covers the cost of claims made against your business when a person has been injured or their property damaged because of your work. For example, if a light installation caused a fire, you would be liable for this damage. Public liability claims can be cripplingly expensive, and it is therefore vital that you are covered. We offer between £1m and £10m of cover.
Tools and equipment cover is vital because it will help you replace your art equipment and tools if they are damaged or stolen. Our easy claims process means that you won’t be out of action for long. Separate cover may be required if you intend to take your equipment abroad.
Details to look out for
- Make sure you read and understand any exclusions to your policy. Simply Business offers you the chance to read the policy documents in full for each quote before you buy.
- If you employ anyone, you are legally obliged to take out employers’ liability insurance. Failure to do so could result in a fine of up to £2,500 for every day you are uninsured.
- If you have your own premises or a home office, you may need add-on covers like business contents insurance or buildings insurance.
