Building your business insurance policy
Your business has individual needs when it comes to insurance. Our quote form helps you to choose the right covers and build them into a policy tailored to your requirements. These core insurance covers should help you get started:
Public liability insurance – important for all building trades, public liability insurance will cover the cost of a claim if a member of the public is injured or killed, or if their property is damaged because of your business. Simply Business offers a minimum of £1 million in cover, up to £5 million.

Employers’ liability insurance – if you have employees or hire contractors, casual workers or temporary staff, you are required by law to take out employers’ liability cover. It will pay the cost of a claim from an employee who has been injured at work, or who has become seriously ill as a result of working for you.
