Who is business insurance for?

Anyone who provides a professional service and could have claims brought against them by a client.

  • Sole traders, freelancers and contractors
  • Limited companies and limited liability partnerships
  • Anyone who provides expertise, skills or advice to clients

Why do you need business insurance?

  • Negligence – being careless in your work, such as giving bad advice or making a mistake
  • Infringement of intellectual property rights – for example re-using content from a website without permission
  • Defamation – making false or damaging claims about a person or organisation
  • Breach of confidence – sharing confidential or commercially sensitive information without consent

How much business insurance cover should you consider?

  • We can provide a range of covers to suit your business needs
  • The level of cover you need depends on the risks your business faces
  • You should consider how much legal fees and compensation could cost you
  • It’s worth checking if your clients’ contracts require you to have a minimum level of cover
Professional, helpful, friendly service from the get-go. Walked me through all my chosen options explaining in plain English what they meant and what was included. I felt both appreciated but treated like someone with whom Hiscox wanted a long term relationship, not just a short term sale.
