Professional Indemnity Insurance (also known as PI Insurance) covers you against the cost of claims from clients who are not satisfied with the word you carried out for them. It also covers the legal fees involved when fighting a claim.
So in essence, professional indemnity cover provides financial protection for your company and is designed to meet the cost of defending claims made against you, including damages that may become payable.
Business liability insurance protects your business against third party claims for injury or damage to people or their property. Every business of every size needs to ensure they have adequate insurance for their own protection. As a freelance business owner you have responsibilities towards your clients and the general public.
Are you concerned about tax investigations by the Inland Revenue? Or perhaps an agency/client that fails to pay your invoice? This type of insurance is designed to pay legal costs to enable you to defend yourself, or pursue your legal rights.
All our business insurance products can be found here through sister site Contractor UK: insurance products for contractors and freelancers.
LIFE COVER/INCOME PROTECTION
Insurance cover available:
We have teamed up with FreelancerMoney to provide life insurance. This can be a hugely important purchase as unlike most permanent employees you have no employer to pay out should the worst ever happen.
Whilst permanent employees have invariably have the benefit of at least 3 months pay in the event of accident or sickness, as a freelancer you are exposed to financial loss the first morning that you are unable to arrive on site, fit and ready to work. There are ways that you can protect yourself from hardship.
