Find The Right Home Office Insurance For You

There are 4 things that you need to consider when buying Home Business Insurance.

  1. Liabilities – Your Home Office Insurance will cover liabilities whilst operating, these are to your customers, suppliers, people and places you visit and also people who may visit you at your home.This is called Public liability cover, which protects you for injuries and physical damage to property at your home and also if you visit someone, like a client.
  2. Contents & equipment – What we call material damage, protection for your stock, but also your tools and equipment, which may be a lap top or some other tool you may use in connection with your business, but essentially all your business contents kept at home. N.B. Standard Home Insurance policies specifically exclude business contents for loss or damage
  3. Financial cover – If you were unable to conduct your business from home, due to an insured peril, like a flood, burst pipe, storm, fire etc, your Home-Based Business Insurance policy would pay you for your lost income, either by paying for lost revenues or pay to have you located somewhere else. This is called increased cost of working or business interruption cover. If your business provides advice, to it’s customers then you could be sued for wrongful advice this is called Professional Indemnity cover and provides protection for any errors or omissions given verbally or in writing.
  4. Legal liabilities – Due to the litigation culture we have in the UK, it is essential to consider in buying legal production for your business. The basic cover provides protection against Tax Investigations and Employee disputes. But it can also include contract disputes, recovery of debts, and much more.
  5. Professional Indemnity Insurance – provides cover for errors & omissions given verbally or in writing to your client and they then act upon that advise and suffer a loss, you can be sued for damages
  6. Directors & Officers – covers your personal liability as a Director or Manager of your business.

As you can see there is a lot to consider when purchasing Home Business Insurance cover and you need sound advice and help.

Many of the Home Office Insurance policies we have can also include the rest of your home insurance contents and also the building itself. The cover is not just covering your Home-Based Business Insurance contents & liabilities but also the rest of your property. You may not want to add everything together onto your Home Business Insurance policy, but be aware that a standard home insurer will regard operating any business from home as a material fact and you you will need to inform them of your situation despite your home insurers not providing any protection for your business. They still need to be informed and be given the opportunity to either continue cover, decline cover or apply additional terms.
