Business insurance protects the assets of a business.
It helps to protect against the risks that you may not be able to cover yourself.
Business Insurance is highly tailorable and aims to protect you with the covers below:

  • Property insurance covers damages or losses that occur to any of your buildings, stock, contents, or equipment;
  • Liability insurance covers claims made by others against you due to injuries or damages caused by your business and employees that you are liable for;
  • Business Interruption protects your turnover if you were to suffer an unforeseen event that interrupted your trade.

The cost for a particular policy depends on factors such as

  • The industry;
  • What policy covers you select to insure;
  • Annual turnover;
  • Employee numbers;
  • Location of premises;
  • Engagement of subcontractors;
  • Claims history;
  • Perceived risk by the insurers.

Reducing (or not taking out) your insurance cover can save you money in the short term, but it will leave you out of pocket if something unexpected happens. In order to avoid nasty surprises, it pays to be prepared with adequate insurance cover that is right for your needs.

  • The size of your business (e.g., number of employees);
  • Who you work with (e.g. do you subcontract to another company?);
  • Your annual revenue;
  • Your location.
