What insurance do business consultants need?

We've designed world-class insurance and made it super simple to buy.

Building your cover

Running a professional consulting business involves regular contact with clients and that means you’re exposed to a certain element of risk.

If you or one of your employees accidentally causes injury or property damage in the course of your work you could face legal claims and demands for compensation, even if you believe you weren’t at fault. For example, if a client trips and injure themselves while on your premises, the bill for legal and compensation costs could run into the thousands, or more.

Cover for your business essentials

As a professional advisor, you’re also likely to need professional indemnity insurance, to cover any claims that your advice has caused reputational or financial damage to the client’s business.

Another consideration is contents insurance to cover all the physical equipment you need to run your business.

Finally, if you employ staff then employers’ liability cover is a legal requirement.
