What insurance do I need for my online business?

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.

Retailers often keep large amounts of valuable stock on the premises, so it’s sensible to insure it separately from your contents. If it was damaged, destroyed or stolen, your stock cover would help to cover the cost price (not the resale value) of your stock.

  • Make sure you read and understand any exclusions on your policy. Simply Business offers you the chance to read the policy documents for each quote before you buy
  • If you employ people, even in your own home, you are legally obliged to take out employers’ liability insurance. Failure to do so could result in heavy fines

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.
