Running a software development business comes with risks. Without insurance, you're likely to face some hefty bills, not to mention damage to your reputation.

Small Business Insurance

Fast, effective and commitment free.

Software and app development are among the most innovative and fast-growing industries out there. Combining creativity and technical skills, your services are highly valued, and clients put their trust in you to deliver high quality work, on time.

But running a software development business also comes with risks. What if a project doesn't go as planned, you suffer a data breach, or your equipment gets stolen? Without insurance, you're likely to face some hefty bills, not to mention damage to your reputation.

Why do I need insurance

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

Cyber and data threats

Protecting customer and user data is non-negotiable, with cyber-attacks on the rise and the GDPR cnow in force. Even with the latest security solutions in place, sometimes a breach is unavoidable, which is why Cyber Liability Cover is so important. Covering any legal fees, fines and financial losses, our cover also includes a first response package, minimising reputational damage and business downtime.

Contract disputes

Software development can be an unpredictable business. Mistakes can happen, projects can go awry and you can face client and contract disagreements, often through no fault of your own. Professional Indemnity Insurance is designed for just those eventualities, covering any legal costs, fines and compensation payments.

IP infringement

A great idea is worth protecting, whether it's your own copyright and trademarks, or somebody else's. Our professional indemnity cover will protect you if you accidentally infringe on the IP of another business, covering legal and compensation costs. Plus, we'll pay up to £25,000 to defend your own IP from infringement by others.

Tools of the trade

A theft, fire or flood, could mean losing some or all of your valuable equipment and belongings, with disastrous repercussions for your business. With our Office Contents and Portable Equipment Cover, we'll make sure your gear is replaced and you're back up and running in no time. And unlike with many providers, being based in a co-working space is no problem.
