Journalists and broadcasters face so many unique challenges every day, and that’s all part of the excitement of the job, but it’s not without its risks.
As most journalists work on a self-employed, freelance basis, these additional risks have to be considered, and indeed covered, by you, rather than the company you are working for. Journalist insurance is essential within this field as well as media insurance and film insurance dependent upon your profession.
Whilst many acknowledge this as just another requirement of the job, it does open you up to a level of risk that wouldn’t be seen in other professions. For this reason, it’s important to ensure your media insurance policy is created with your needs in mind.
From public liability to professional indemnity insurance, Caunce O’Hara can have you covered in just a few clicks so that you can rest assured that you have the necessary levels of protection for the best premium possible.

As a freelancer or contractor, holding a Tax Enquiry and Legal Expenses policy to protect you against the costs of an IR35 investigation could be key to the survival of your business.
When HMRC begin an IR35 investigation into your limited company they can request a great deal of information including evidence to support your IR35 status. It is important that you have an expert handling your case to guide you through the process and ensure all documentation is correct. By having a Tax Enquiry & Legal Expenses policy in place it will give you peace of mind that your investigation is being both handled and represented by a professional in the industry when you need it most.
