Building your IT contractors’ business insurance policy
You may need several types of IT contractors’ cover depending on the nature of your work. These covers should help you get started:
Professional indemnity insurance can be important for IT contractors. If you give advice as part of your job and it is found to be faulty or negligent, your client may suffer a financial loss for which you would be liable. Professional indemnity insurance can cover the cost of any resulting claims made against you.
Public liability insurance is important because it covers the cost if a claim is made against you when a person has been injured or their property damaged because of your business activities. Public liability claims can be large, so is important that you are properly covered. Simply Business offers public liability insurance up to a value of £5 million.
