Sole trader insurance provides tailored protection to those who run their business as exclusive owners. Core covers include public liability and professional indemnity, whilst employers’ liability is a legal requirement if you have one employee or more.
Watch Simply Business chief operating officer Chris Slater explain what type of insurance you need if you operate your business from home.
The insurance you need will depend on the type of business you run and the risks you face, but here are some of the key covers:
Public liability insurance can cover compensation claims if someone is injured or their property is damaged and your business is held responsible. You can choose between £1 million and £10 million of cover. Check your client contracts as they may specify a minimum level of cover
Professional indemnity insurance is important for sole traders who provide advice or offer a professional service, as it can pay compensation claims made by a client because they’ve been given advice that means they lose money
Most businesses that have employees (even if these are contractors or temporary staff) are required by law to have an employers’ liability insurance policy. This can pay compensation claims made by employees who have been injured or have fallen ill as a result of working for you
