What can I include with business insurance?

Public liability insurance

You’re responsible for the welfare of every customer or visitor. Public liability keeps you covered if a member of the public is accidentally injured or their property gets damaged while dealing with your business. We’ll cover you up to £5 million. You’ll also get product liability cover – for if your products accidentally cause damage to a customer.

Professional indemnity insurance

If people rely on your professional expertise, they can claim against you if they think you’ve made a mistake or given them bad advice. It covers the legal costs required to defend you, and if it turns out you’re in the wrong, it covers your compensation payments too.
