Find out why you might need to consider Business insurance.
Why is it important To Have Business insurance?
If you operate a business with employees then by law you need to have a minimum level of cover in place to protect those working for you. Aside from the legal responsibilities, it is important to have cover in place to protect the things your business needs in order to operate, in case the worst should happen and you would not be able to afford to replace them to keep your business going, causing your business to cease trading – this could include things like vehicles (or fleets of vehicles), tools, machinery, equipment, stock, computers, buildings and all other contents.
Most insurance policies are optional; it is down to each business to decide what types of cover they want and what level of protection they need.
Reasons To Take Out Cover Could include:
- To Protect Your Business
- For Employers’ It Is The Law

- To Demonstrate Responsibility
- To Cover Services & Products
- To Protect Stock
- To Protect Buildings & Contents
- To Protect Vehicles & Fleets
- To Cover Tools & Equipment
- To Cover Business Interruption
