Overlooking insurance altogether

Insurance is often overlooked in the busy business environment. An underinsured business or a company without insurance could be totally destroyed if a claim was to arise against them. Even when times are tough and revenue is low businesses should not neglect their insurance needs. Without adequate cover companies, directors and senior management all place themselves at risk of claims being made against them. This in turn could cause serious financial problems including bankruptcy.

Understanding what is covered

Business owners should be aware of what is covered in each of the policies that insurance companies offer and what is excluded. By talking to a Broker they will be able to explain what the benefits of each policy are and why you should consider investing in each one. Brokers can provide advice tailored to your business needs.

Reviewing what is covered when your business grows

We recommend a periodic review of your insurance cover. By evaluating your businesses risks frequently you can ensure that your policy will adequately cover you in the event of a claim arising. Unpredictable situations occur daily and your insurance should therefore continually adapt and adjust to the circumstances of your business. It is not like car insurance with a one off payment that will cover you throughout the course of the year. If your business is extremely successful after you’ve invested in a policy you would place yourself at risk of claims which exceed the initial limit of indemnity. This in turn could place your business and your personal assets at risk. You can speak to one of our brokers directly, or get your cover online, anytime using our Multi-Quote & Buy platform for your convenience.

Review your cover

When your business grows it may affect what your policy covers. We therefore recommend a periodic review of your insurance cover. Make sure you frequently update your insurance policy in order to accommodate for unpredicted increases in business.
