What’s business insurance?

Business insurance includes cover that protects you and your company from financial damages andbuilding or contents losses, relevant to your field or specialism.

Broadly speaking, the most popular business insurance policies include public liability, professional indemnity and employers’ liability, with good reason:

Public liability insurance

Hell hath no fury like a scorned member of the public, especially when it comes to claims.

Public liability insurance protects you if you damage their property, if they have an accident on your premises, or if you provide any advice or service (that doesn’t pan out) for a fee.

Professional indemnity insurance

If one of your customers sues you because you’ve damaged their property, or they claim you haven’t fulfilled your duties, professional indemnity insurance to the rescue to cover your legal fees.

Employers' liability

It’ll cover the cost of the compensation plus legal fees if an employee sues you if they’re injured, or they contract a disease at work.

But different policies will include all sorts of other cover, and you can make your policy suit the nuances of your business - fancy, eh?

You can read all about more specialist business insurance in our guides and tips filed away in the Business insurance briefcase.

Company insurance comparison

Business notes

  • Employers' liability insurance is compulsory for businesses that have one or more employees
  • Glass and shutters insurance can cover replacement following accidental or malicious damage

To compare business insurance for your company, you’ll need details about your business and the level of cover you want. That includes public or product liability insurance, professional indemnity cover, buildings insurance, revenue protection or business interruption cover, protection for your business and office equipment and stock.

Start your business insurance quote

Have to hand info about claims made by your firm in the last five years, or any pending.

Depending on the sort of cover you choose, you may also be asked for some more detailed info about your company and its work.

You’ll then either be presented with your quotes online, or - if your circumstances don’t allow for an instant quote - your details will be passed on to an insurance specialist to look at.
