What types of business insurance do we need?
The type of business insurance you require will be determined by a number of factors including your business activities, whether you have employees and whether you operate vehicles driving on the roads.
Insurance contracts can be complicated, therefore we recommend you speak with one of our Account Executives to discuss your requirements. It would be unfortunate to suffer a loss that could have been covered at an affordable cost.
Is business insurance a compulsory legal requirement?
When considering what insurance your business needs, there are a few compulsory business insurance covers required under UK law:
Employer's liability insurance
Employer's liability insurance
which must be purchased as soon as you become an employer, with a minimum of £5 million Limit (however £10 million is more commonly offered) from an authorised business insurer.
Professional indemnity insurance
Professional Indemnity insurance
must be purchased if you operate within a regulated industry, such as financial services that requires minimum amounts of cover. However, it worth noting that many other businesses still purchase the cover.

What to consider when buying business insurance?
Identifying the right cover can seem like a difficult task. However, it's worth spending time to assess your situation and consider what protections (i.e. directors and officers insurance
) can assist if something unexpected occurs.
Company insurance is one of the most effective ways to manage unexpected costs. However, the decisions you make concerning your business coverage will very much depend upon your individual circumstances.

What level of business insurance cover do we need?
The amount of cover you buy could have a significant impact. A thematic review by the Financial Conduct Authority in 2015 revealed 40% of SMEs could be underinsured, leaving themselves exposed to a significant financial shortfall.
If an insurance claim exceeds the maximum amount payable under your policy, or you don’t have adequate protection that meets your business needs in the event of a financial loss, you are deemed to be underinsured.
Customers who undervalue their insurance protection in a calculated way to reduce their premium, might be surprised at how little they ‘save’ and how costly a loss could impact their business.
