Business Insurance With Proper Finance

If you are considering starting your own business, or already have a company, it is vital that you have business insurance in place, in order to protect you when it comes to compensation and to ensure your firm is compliant with UK regulations. However, with so many business loan providers providing finance across the country, it can be difficult to know which one to choose. Luckily, Proper Finance can help you make the search that little bit less difficult.

Why is Business Insurance Important?

Making sure that you find the appropriate business insurance for your company is extremely important for a number of reasons. For example, it helps to protect you and your firm against potentially unforeseen costs, such as legal fees or compensation costs. The exact type of business insurance that you will need will also be dependent on the sector you are in. For example, you might need things such as property insurance, or public liability insurance, amongst others that are available.

What Is Employers’ Liability Insurance?

As previously mentioned, this is a type of business insurance that you must have if you have any employees, whether or not it is simply on a part-time basis or just on a temporary basis. If you do not do this, you will find you are breaking the law, and you could face a heavy fine.

When you take out employers liability insurance, the policy will then protect you if an employee of yours becomes ill as a result of the work they have carried out, or if they have become injured. In the event that this occurs, then they may then look to seek compensation from you, and depending on the individual situation, a successful compensation payout could end up being costly for your firm, potentially leaving you out of pocket. Therefore, to help protect you and your company, employer’s liability cover will cover the costs involved with compensation as well as the potentially high cost that may be incurred with defending the claim itself.

It is important to always remember that if you are a business owner who has employees, you should always stay within the law or face heavy financial consequences for not doing so, and therefore buy employers’ liability cover. Proper Finance works with a number of leading lenders who provider employers’ liability cover, and can help you find the appropriate insurer if you sign up with us today.
