Check the details

  • Remember, your equipment insurance will only cover you while your kit is in the UK. If you intend to take it abroad you’ll need to arrange a separate policy
  • Find out what level of professional indemnity insurance your clients might expect before you buy
  • If you employ people, even in your own home, you’re legally obliged to take out employers’ liability insurance. Not doing this could lead to a heavy fine

Building your policy

Public liability insurance is important for all trades, in case someone is injured or killed, or their property damaged because of your business. Simply Business offers between £1 million and £5 million in cover, to protect you against this cost.

Professional indemnity insurance is a vital consideration for all businesses that give advice or offer professional services to other businesses. It covers you in the event that you give faulty advice that causes financial loss to a client.

If you have employees, contractors, casual workers or temporary staff, you’re required by law to take out employers’ liability insurance. It’ll cover claims from employees who’ve been injured or become seriously ill as a result of working for you.
