Self Employed Business Insurance

Why is business insurance so important?

Whatever your business, insurance is vital to protect against worse case scenarios and when things don’t go quite to plan whilst you are carrying out your business. Self-employed individuals, SMEs and large MNCs alike need to have business insurance in place to provide financial protection.

Types of business insurance

Business insurance can protect you against a number of different things and typically includes public liability, employers’ liability, and professional indemnity insurance. There is also business insurance available if your premises are damaged or against claims made against the business.

The type of business insurance you need depends on your unique needs for your specific business and circumstances. You need to weigh up your affordability of the premium against the level of protection required for your business. Smaller businesses and self-employed business owners are more likely to suffer devastating financial loss if they fail to insure themselves properly, without shareholder funds and large reserves to fall back on.

Business insurance legal requirements

As well as for the peace of mind of protecting your livelihood, some types of business insurance are legally required, e.g. if you employ at least one non-family member, employers’ liability insurance is legally required for businesses. Accountants or solicitors and similar professions may also be legally required to have professional indemnity insurance.

The level of legally required business insurance will depend greatly on the nature of your business, the type of industry you operate in, the number of staff you employ and your turnover. If you are unsure about what business insurance you legally need to have, check with your regulator or professional body, or ask an experienced business insurance adviser from Active.

A self-employed business owner or a partner in a large corporation will appreciate the importance of having the right type of business insurance and the right level to protect their finances.
