What insurance do accountants need?

Professional indemnity insurance for accountants

Professional indemnity insurance is a vital consideration for all businesses that give advice or offer professional services to other businesses. It can cover you if you give faulty advice that causes financial loss to a client.

Accountants' professional indemnity insurance can cover for mistakes such as:

  • professional negligence
  • unintentional breaches of copyright or confidentiality
  • loss of documents or data
  • defamation or libel

You can buy professional indemnity insurance as a stand-alone cover or as part of a combined policy with other covers such as public liability insurance. At Simply Business we offer between £50,000 and £5 million in professional indemnity cover.

Public liability insurance for accountants

Public liability insurance is often an important cover for many businesses, 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.

It is a very good and easy to use service. I've been a customer for several years and the renewal system is very straight forward. I've always found the quotes competitive too. I'd definitely recommend Simply Business.
