What cover do I need?
Arthur J. Gallagher will find the best insurance deal for your business. To help you understand some of the key covers that are available, why not take a look at our business insurance checklist:
Employers’ Liability – do you employ staff and what would you do if they were injured working for you?
If you employ staff, it’s a legal requirement for businesses in the UK to carry Employers’ Liability insurance of at least £5m. Failure to do so could result in a fine of £2,500 and there is also a risk that a business’s reputation could suffer.
Public Liability – could you continue to trade if you caused injury to a member of the public and they decided to bring legal action against you?
We live in an increasingly litigious environment. Although not mandatory, public liability protects businesses in the event that a claim is made against them by a member of the public following injury or damage to their property. The most common type of claim are slip and trips.
Property Damage – what would happen if your contents and stock were damaged or stolen?
Cover can be arranged for your buildings, contents, computer equipment and stock.
Business Interruption – could you afford to keep your business running after a fire or a flood?
In the event of a fire or a flood at your premises, it’s essential that you continue to trade so your revenue is protected. Business interruption cover kicks in following a property damage claim and helps you to maintain relationships with your customers and suppliers.
These are just a few of the covers that businesses need to consider at the outset of their journey – whatever your insurance needs are, we’ve got it covered.
