What insurance do tradesmen need?

Public liability insurance is often a very important cover for tradesmen and most other business categories, as it can protect you if someone is injured or their property is damaged because of your business. Simply Business offers between £1 million and £5 million in cover, to protect you against this cost.

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.

Tool insurance is also popular with many tradesmen, as it covers your work tools against loss, damage or theft. You can also include protection for plant and machinery and other business equipment as part of your policy.
