Business insurance is to protect business owners and independent professionals against everyday risks, such as mistakes, stock or premises damage, and legal costs Here are the most popular types of business insurance and the reasons why business owners may need them.
• Public Liability Insurance
Public liability insurance is a key consideration if your business comes into contact with members of the public, whether that’s at your premises or elsewhere. It can protect you against compensation claims for injury or damage made by clients, customers, suppliers, or other third parties.
• Professional Indemnity Insurance
Professional indemnity insurance is important if your business gives advice or offers a professional service to other businesses, or if you deal with client data or intellectual property and can cover the compensation claims and legal costs.
• Employers’ Liability Insurance
If your business employs staff, you’re probably legally required to have an employers’ liability insurance policy. This covers compensation claims made by a member of staff because they’ve suffered injury, illness or damage as a result of their work.

Whether you work from home or have separate business premises such as a shop, office, or pub, business buildings insurance should be a priority. If you rent the premises, make sure to check with your landlord to see what’s already covered.
