Building your self-employed insurance

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.

Check the details

  • Make sure you read your policy documents carefully and that you understand any exclusions that may apply
  • 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

Add it to your current policy

If you already have a policy with us and want to add this cover, give our team a call on 0845 071 0270. We’ll check you’re eligible, and help get you up to date.
