Protect your home business

Running a business from home may seem less risky with no office overheads or lengthy commutes each day. However, this doesn’t mean you can rest easy when it comes to business insurance. Whatever your trade or profession, there will be risks involved and you will need to protect against these to ensure the safety of your clients, employees and anyone else in connection with your business.

Many people are under the impression that their business contents are covered by their home insurance; however, this is generally not the case. Most home insurance policies exclude business activities, which means it is even more critical to get comprehensive home business insurance.

Working from home business insurance can cover a range of exposures, including liabilities, assets and legal expenses cover. All of which can be tailored to your individual business needs to give you peace of mind to work without worry.

Public Liability insurance for home businesses

If you have clients or suppliers visiting your home, then your working home based business insurance will need to include public liability insurance to safeguard your business if a client were to sustain an injury as a result of an accident at your premises. As careful as you may be, accidents do happen, and injury claims can be costly, so adding public liability insurance to your insurance policy is essential.

Employers’ Liability insurance for home businesses

If you are working from home and employ staff, then employers' liability is legally required to protect your employees against accidents that may occur during the course of their employment. Public liability and employers' liability insurance can typically be combined to make up part of your working from home business insurance.

Home Business legal protection

Commercial legal insurance should be considered to cover against tax and VAT disputes, employment disputes and compensation awards, as well as jury service allowance.

Product liability for home businesses

If you are producing a product from home, whether its cakes, curtains or cabinets, you will need to consider product liability insurance to cover you if your product caused injury or damage to one of your customers. For instance, if you accidentally gave someone food poisoning, your product liability insurance can protect you.

Professional indemnity for home workers

If you’re involved in design work, providing advice or in a service-led industry, then professional indemnity insurance should be a key consideration. If the advice you gave caused a client financial loss then you may be liable to pay compensation. Professional indemnity insurance for home based businesses can give you peace of mind knowing that should something unexpected happen, you’re protected.

"I’ve used Premierline for my work insurance for a few years now. They always find me such competitive prices. As a small business owner I really couldn’t afford the prices when I looked online myself especially after having had no work for 7 weeks when Covid-19 first hit. So it was a huge relief to find a policy I could afford and be ready for when work started to pour in."

Mrs Bridger, Cleaning Contractor, Devon (Customer since April 2017)

"I rang Premierline just to check other insurance offers, after my sky high renewal from my previous insurer. The adviser was friendly and very easy to understand and talk to and he got me a fantastic deal. Very happy.”

Mrs McCall, Pet Shop, North Shields (Customer since January 2021)

"Overall, Premierline offered a great service in securing my annual Professional Indemnity insurance. It was a very simple process and everything was explained well."
