What business insurance do I need?

Choose the right level of cover from the professional practices insurance policies we offer:

  • Professional Practices PI Insurance

    If your business offers professional advice or services, professional practices insurance can help to protect you against the financial blow of compensation claims and legal fees if a client makes a complaint about your work. As a professional practice, this is probably the most important cover you need. Your business will be insured for claims up to £2m if you’re sued for an accident that happened as a result of your work, or if a dissatisfied customer files a negligence claim against you.

  • 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 £50,000 to protect your office contents, computer equipment and furniture against accidental damage and theft, with optional insurance for portable equipment.
    • Business interruption insurance up to £500,000 covering you for loss of income during periods when you cannot carry out business as usual due to an unexpected event such as a flood or fire.
  • Tax Enquiry and Legal Expenses Insurance

    For only £75.00 you can protect your business against the costs of legal action taken against you, including contract disputes, debt recovery, tax, VAT and HMRC investigations.
    We also offer IR35 Contract Reviews for only £60.00.

  • "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."
  • "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."
  • "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."
  • "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."
