That’s a single premium, a single renewal date, and a single set of documents. It’s quick, quality cover, without the hassle.

What if I work from home?

Your conventional home and contents insurance policy may not cover your business items and you may need a separate business insurance cover. Also, if you have clients visiting your premises, you should consider public liability insurance.

Simply Business chief operating officer Chris Slater explains the ins and outs of insurance for freelancers who work from home.

What insurance do freelancers need?

Public liability insurance is often an important cover for 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.

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. At Simply Business we offer between £1 million and £5 million in professional indemnity cover. 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.
