What Types of Business Insurance Are Available?
Employers’ Liability Insurance
Employers’ liability insurance is a legal requirement for any business that employs one or more people. This type of insurance protects you against the cost of compensation claims if one of your employees gets hurt or becomes ill through working for you. If you do not have this type of insurance in place you could get a fine of up to £2,500.
Professional Indemnity Insurance
Another type of cover that small businesses may need is professional indemnity insurance. This is not a legal requirement but you may be asked to have it in place by other companies that you are working with. This type of insurance covers you for if someone says that your work as caused a problem or you have given them bad advice, and takes legal action against you. In this scenario, you could face a large legal bill if you do not have professional indemnity insurance in place. A policy might cost a few hundred pounds a year – but could save you thousands should something go awry.
Public Liability Insurance
Many businesses of all kinds will also require public liability insurance. This type of insurance is there to cover the cost of legal action or compensation claims against your company, if a member of the public is hurt of their belongings are damaged while they are on your premises. This type of insurance also covers you if you are working in someone else’s home, office or business location.
This type of insurance is a very good idea for all those who regularly come into contact with the general public, or who welcome the general public into their workplace. This includes: shops, pubs, cafes, restaurants, contractors and tradespeople.
Business contents insurance policies are another type of insurance that many businesses will have to consider. These are very similar to the contents insurance policies that we take out to protect our homes. In return for the insurance premiums, an insurance company will cover the business against losses to its contents. Whatever your business, if you have physical premises then contents insurance will usually be essential, especially as that business grows and physical items accumulate.
Business Insurance will cover you for:
- Damage due to fire.
- Damage due to flood.
- Damage due to lightning strike.
- Damage due to storms.
- Damage due to riots, civil disorder and vandalism.
- Theft from your premises.
Such a policy will generally cover losses to:
- Fixtures and fittings
- Stock (Raw materials & finished goods)
Some businesses may also find is necessary to cover other items, such as:
- Cash kept on the premises before being banked.
- Goods in transit.
Different insurers will have different ideas on what is covered as standard, so check a policy carefully before you choose which one to go with, to make sure you have adequate cover for your needs.
If you rent out a property then you will probably not be covered by usual home insurance and contents insurance policies since you do not life there. You will have to take out landlord insurance in order to make sure that your property is protected. If you have a buy to let business, having landlord insurance cover in place will protect you should your property be damaged.
In addition, a mortgage lender or bank may insist that you have ‘let building insurance’ or ‘rental building insurance’ that will cover the cost of completely rebuilding the property should something disastrous happen. You may also wish to take out extra insurance to cover the contents of the property as well as its physical structure.
A useful added component to landlord insurance is that it is possible to include protection against loss of earnings due to an insured event such as a fire. You may also be able to find additional cover in case you cannot find a tenant for a period of time.
Business Life Insurance
How would your business function if it lost a key person, a director, shareholder or member of staff? Everyone has their role to play and a small business depends on the people within it. In order to be prepared for the worst, it may be a good idea to get key person insurance, so the company will not go under should that person suddenly be unable to work.
You could also consider purchasing relevant life insurance policies for staff or employees. This can be a good part of a benefits package and can help you retain your best staff or recruit new talent. The policy can be suited to your requirements and is free from income tax.
Business life insurance can also include business loan protection, so you can pay back money even
if you lose the input of a key figure in the business. Policies you put in place could also protect ownership of a business should shareholders or owners die unexpectedly.
With Money Pug, it is easier than ever to find the right Business insurance policy or policies for you and to make sure that your business is covered for every eventuality in this unpredictable world.
