Different insurance policies can provide security cover for you and your business. Ensuring that your business is covered in all areas, regardless of whether you run a cafe or an office, is crucial. But do you know the types of insurance you need to consider? Here are the different types of policies you should be considering for your business.

Public liability covers the business against injury and damage claims made against you or your employees. Whilst professional indemnity insurance protects against the financial loss during a claim in which the client deems the service provided to be substandard.
After considering your professional policies, it is essential for you to consider your employees. For example what if your employees get injured while on the work premises? Looking after you Businesses with employees should take out worker’s compensation insurances. Depending on your policy this can help to cover the costs associated with employee sickness or work-related injury such as lost wages and may provide protection if an employee decides to take legal action.
