What are the types of cover?
When you take out Professional Indemnity Insurance you need to consider the sort of risks you may face as a business. Even if you have done nothing wrong, the legal costs of defending yourself against claims can invariably be very high, not to mention stressful in finding solicitors. For example, An Architect for example can make a mistake on their submitted plans, the client may allege that this resulted in a huge financial cost to them. Having an expert in your corner from the outset can be key to working out the true cost and defending your business. A web developer could create a new website for a client with errors leading to lost business. Having a dedicated claims team can often lead to a potential claim being settled for far less, or even dismissed entirely.
PI insurance pays your legal costs, as well as compensation payments if your client takes action against you. For many businesses large or small, it is required as essential; without it, you will be forced to cover costs yourself.
GET IN TOUCH
Often, beyond just needing turnover, we need to get an understanding of your business by asking the 3 largest contracts you currently have. This will give us an understanding of the size of your business and the potential exposure you may have. This will help determine the level of cover needed.
A lot is determined by what business you have and likely exposure. In some cases, the regulatory body offer guidelines. Your policy amount should be enough to cover the cost of defending and or settling any potential claims against you.
Business Insurance is considered an allowable expense when calculating your allowable expenses, so yes, it is tax-deductible.
A basic distinction would be to say that PI insurance covers the financial cost of a professional mistake or negligence whereas PL insurance covers your business if a member of the public gets injured as a result of your business activities.
The retroactive date refers to the date that you have held cover continuously. It marks the beginning of the period your business is covered for. Any claims before your retroactive date won’t be covered by your policy.
