Your business covered

Our flexible policies let you choose the right level of cover for your business. And if you’re not sure, just give our knowledgeable insurance experts a call and we’ll help you choose. Our cover includes:

  • Freelance professional indemnity insurance

    Probably the most important cover a freelancer needs, insuring you for claims if you’re sued for a mistake that happened as a result of your work, or if a dissatisfied customer files a negligence claim against you. Choose from nine limits of cover from £50,000 to £5m.

  • Business combined insurance

    Great value, complete cover for your business in one simple bundle. Includes:

    • Public liability insurance for £1 million, with the option to increase to £5m, if you have to visit client premises or they visit yours.
    • Employers’ liability insurance for £10 million, covering you for claims from employees for injury or illness during their employment. This is legally required for most companies, and is compulsory for many contracts.
    • Office contents insurance up to £10,000 to protect your office contents, computer equipment and furniture against accidental damage and theft, with optional insurance for portable equipment.
    • Directors’ and officers’ liability insurance from £250,000 in case you’re held personally responsible in claims against your business by creditors, employees, customers or regulatory bodies like HMRC.
  • Tax enquiry & legal expenses insurance and Contract review

    Protects your business against the costs of legal action taken against you, including contract disputes, debt recovery, tax, VAT and HMRC investigations.
    Contract review available when you purchase a Tax enquiry & legal expenses insurance policy.

  • "Used these before then changed to another broker who could not help me with an update to my insurance. Caunce O'Hara had no problem and set up my insurance in about five minutes. Highly recommended."
  • "I have automatically renewed my indemnity insurance for several years but as I have gradually reduced work commitments I needed to discuss my options prior to making a decision about renewal.
    I found the person I dealt with very helpful and knowledgeable about my options."
  • "I have been with Caunce O'Hara for almost 12 years now and am always very pleased with their service and customer support as well as the costs for the cover."
  • "All correspondence has always been clear and reply to questions swiftly answered. Cost is very competitive. Would definitely recommend."
  • "Insurance Renewal - Plenty of warning up front as to renewal date, requests for any changes and quote. Reminder leading to actual renewal date. New certificates available on date agreed. Can't complain at all about the service."
  • "A very helpful, kowledgable and adaptable telephone advisor enabled discussion beyond standard questions in order to secure the most approprite insurance honed to my business deeds and relevant discounts. This led to the most comptitive quote over other larger companies."
