Whether you rent commercial premises or you manage your business from home, small business insurance is an essential requirement for protecting your company from unforeseen circumstances. There are various types of insurance that you can take out, depending on the size of your company and the type of service that it provides. Public Liability Insurance will cover you against any damage that your business causes to another person or property, so that if someone takes legal action against you as a result of this, the insurance will cover the costs of dealing with the claim.
It is important to have Professional Indemnity Insurance if you give professional advice to clients, because otherwise if a client suffers a financial loss and makes a legal claim against you, you are liable for meeting any costs incurred by that claim. Employers' Liability Insurance is a legal requirement if you employ staff, and this will cover you against an employee getting injured at work and making a claim. Finally, business interruption insurance will cover you against suffering any losses as a result of being unable to trade due to damage to your business premises or equipment. Whether small or large, every business needs cover to ensure that you, your employees and premises are covered against every eventuality.
