the importance of business insurance - and why choose us...

Why is Business Insurance required?
Insurance for Business has been developed to provide essential cover in the event of claims arising from loss or damage to property/assets and injury to persons while the business is carrying out it's day-to-day activities. And for businesses with a professional service, protection from claims arising from professional errors and ommissions. If you value your business and livelihood then you should have effective insurance cover in place.

A growing amount of legislation exposes businesses to many types of claims and legal responsibilities, and more recently company law has been introduced that puts greater legal responsibilities onto individual Directors, exposing them to personal claims and criminal charges under certain circumstanses - which is why Directors and Officers liability cover is now an important element of insurance cover.

Statutory legal requirements
Employers Liability Insurance and Third Party Motor Insurance are mandatory by law and there are some business sectors that insist on certain types of cover - for example, the Law Society require Solicitors to have Professional Indemnity cover.

Other than these few mandatory types of insurance, your level of cover is by personal choice and choosing the correct insurance is crucial if you expect it to work when you need it.  It makes sense to seek professional advice before buying a policy.
