Insurance protects you and your business against the unexpected. It shows your customers that you are professional and care about protecting them. In some cases it is the law.

  • How much Professional Indemnity Insurance do I need?

    Your contract may stipulate the limit of insurance you require so it is worth taking a look to make sure you meet the required limit.

    When considering the limit you require think about the following:
    The size of your largest contract/project.
    The potential amount of loss your negligent advice or incorrect designs could amount to.
    The limit of liability written into your contract.

  • How can I protect myself against IR35 investigations?

    Even if you have a compliant contract and you believe your working practices are outside of IR35, HMRC could still come knocking at your door. As a contractor, holding a Tax Enquiry and Legal Expenses policy protects you against the costs of an IR35 investigation. Call us on 0333 321 1403 for details

  • Do I need Public Liability cover?

    Your contract may stipulate the limit of insurance you require so it is worth taking a look to make sure you meet the required limit.

    When considering this insurance think about the following:

    If you or any of your employees are visiting a client’s premises or site, or if a client or potential client is visiting your site or premises then you should have this insurance.

    It will protect you against any liability claims for injury or damage to third party property.

  • Do I need Employers Liability cover?

    If you have any employees then it’s the law to have this insurance in place. All insurance policies provide a minimum limit of £10,000,000.

  • Do I really need equipment cover?

    As a contractor your laptop and mobile are expensive yet essential to running your business on the move. Losing or damaging either could cause issues and delays handing the day to day running of your business.

    We aim to get your insurance claim paid within two days once agreed, to get you back to business as quickly as possible.

  • Why should I buy PA/Sickness Insurance?

    We feel this one of the most important covers for you as a contractor. If you have an accident and are unable to work or are off sick you don’t get the benefit of sick pay.

    Our policy provides cover not just for accidents that happen at work but for any accident that prevents you from working.

    Your business needs protection but it’s just as important to protect yourself.

  • Am I exposed as a company Director? How can I stay protected?

    As a company Director you can be held personally responsible for a number of incidents with your personal assets, including your home, at risk. Common scenarios involve Employment practices and HR issues and failure to comply with regulations or laws.

    Directors & Officers liability insurance will provide protection for you.
