The importance of buying business insurance

Insurance isn’t something that most of us are excited about buying. Most people see insurance as a grudge purchase that we need because of regulations, law or necessity.

The value of business insurance

Business insurance is usually purchased out of necessity, with many business owners going for an insurance policy at the cheapest price, but which will usually have lower amounts of cover.

It is difficult to see the value of insurance when the interactions with your insurer involves paying for expensive documents you receive once a year, but insurance in itself gives the security and peace of mind that you are protected in the event that something unexpected should happen.

Insurance is an intangible benefit to your business, a service that you have paid for that you may never get to use, but also a service that you hope that you will never need to use.

Your insurance policy

The actual amount you pay for an insurance policy is typically calculated by the amount of cover (limits, sums insured etc) you have plus your set of circumstances resulting in the policy responding accordingly. Much like a contractor that is able to undercut another by 10% through taking short cuts and using lesser quality materials; a cheaper insurance policy may often provide less protection, pay out in a reduced set of circumstances and/or impose terms and conditions that reduce the scope of work you can take on knowing that you are protected.

But why wouldn’t you want to fully protect your livelihood, the business you’ve worked so hard to build?  Whether it’s theft, fire, a cyber-attack, or staff injury, incidents in the workplace can be costly and knock you off schedule.
