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.

It’s very important to make sure you understand what you need from your insurance. Use the check points below to get you thinking.
