What Insurance Do I Need?

Build your custom design professional insurance policy. We offer:

  • Professional Indemnity Insurance

    Some clients won’t even let you get started on a project until you have professional indemnity insurance in place. This is to protect you as much as it is to protect them. Working on a freelance or contract basis might offer freedom, but it does come with some level of risk. As with all those who are self-employed, fashion or interior design professionals working on a project basis often find themselves open to certain scenarios that full-time employees don’t have to face. This can be anything from defending claims of copyright infringement, or allegations of negligence or non-delivery by your client.

  • Business Combined Insurance

    A popular type of insurance policy for design professionals if business combined insurance. This is a comprehensive package aimed to protect you and your business from a number of issues that may arise. Whilst these situations arising may be rare, it’s important that your insurance provides you with enough protection should any of them occur. Our business combined insurance includes public liability insurance, directors and officers insurance, employer’s liability insurance and office contents insurance. This provides comprehensive cover for a number of situations that might arise as a design professional.

  • Public Liability Insurance

    Up to £2m cover for legal fees and damages if one of your employees causes injury or damage to your customers or their business.

  • Personal Accident & Sickness Insurance

    Losing your income because of sickness or injury can be devastating to your career. With personal accident and sickness insurance, you can insure a portion of your income so that you will always be able to cover your core financial commitments and focus on getting healthy again. Injury and illness can happen when you least expect it, so it makes sense to prepare for any situation.

  • Travel Insurance

    Freelance and contract workers will typically travel for work more often than full-time employees. When you’re travelling to meet clients, it’s important to make sure you are protected against loss or injury. As a design professional, you are far more likely to travel with specialist equipment, so getting the right level of travel insurance is crucial. Travel insurance from Caunce O’Hara provides comprehensive cover for business and personal trips throughout the UK and around the world.

  • Tax Enquiry & Legal Expenses

    When you are responsible for filing your own tax return, it can be very easy to make a mistake. Unfortunately, it isn’t quite so easy to remedy these mistakes and a tax enquiry can be very costly to defend. Our customers also have access to free legal advice, 24/7, so whether you are facing a contract dispute, debt collectors or other legal expenses, you can rest assured our design professional insurance has you covered.
