Protect your business, your finances and your reputation with Professional Indemnity Insurance

Professional Indemnity Insurance

What is Professional Indemnity Insurance?

Professional Indemnity Insurance can protect you from some unique risks your business faces when giving advice or providing a service.

If it’s found you made a mistake that caused injury, damage or financial loss to your client, you could face legal fees and damages. Professional Indemnity Insurance is designed to cover these costs and stop them putting pressure on your business’s cash flow.

This protection is designed for businesses that give advice or provide a service. There are two types of cover, one for professionals and consultants (like accountants, graphic designers or fitness instructors) and one for IT and communications (like IT business analysts, IT hardware engineers or IT project managers).
