How much does consultants insurance cost?

The cost of consultants insurance depends on a variety of factors including the size of your business, the consultancy projects that you take on and the types and level of cover required. Our business insurance advisors would be happy to discuss your individual insurance requirements and help you find a range of quotes for your consultancy business.

What insurance do consultants need?

For consultants, there are several covers available, which can normally be packaged together under one policy. There are many considerations to make to ensure you have the necessary cover.

Consultants cover to consider:

Consultants insurance covers explained

Public liability

Public liability insurance can protect you financially if a client or visitor takes legal proceedings against you if they suffer an injury or damage their property whilst at your premises, as well as cover for the associated medical and/or legal costs too.

Employers liability

If you employ staff then you may need to include employers’ liability insurance in your consultants’ insurance policy package. This is required by law, save for few very specific businesses, to protect you if your employees claim compensation if they are injured or become ill following an accident or incident whist at work.

Professional indemnity

The advice you provide is given in good faith, to often help solve a complex issue that requires professional skill and judgement. As careful as you may be mistakes can be made that could cause a financial loss and/or reputational damage to your clients. Professional indemnity insurance for consultants can protect you against claims made against you for negligent advice you may give in your professional capacity. Wherever your area of expertise lies, we can arrange professional indemnity cover to suit your needs. Our advisors are on hand over the phone to discuss your professional indemnity insurance requirements.

Office building, contents and equipment

You may spend a lot of time on the road visiting clients but your office will most likely be the base of your hard work. Protecting your documents, client information as well as your contents and buildings is essential. That’s why we arrange office insurance or home business insurance for consultants that incorporates the covers you need. It can include protection for equipment away from your office as well as legal protection and liability insurance to offer a comprehensive package that’s tailored to you.

Business interruption

If you’re office-based, then you should consider including business interruption insurance within your consultants’ insurance policy. This invaluable cover can protect against a loss of income if you suffer damage at your office that interrupts your ability to trade. Whether it’s a burst pipe or a more devastating event such as a fire or flood, having business interruption insurance can offer financial protection to get you back on your feet.

Commercial legal protection

Commercial legal protection could offer cover for the costs relating to unforeseen legal action that may be brought against you for things like property, contract  or employment disputes that may arise within your consultancy business.

Directors and officers insurance

As a company partner, manager or director you could be held personally and legally liable for claims that could arise from your business decisions. Directors and officers insurance could cover the costs of defending you as a director or officer of your company against allegations of wrongful acts and any damages subsequently awarded against you.

Personal accident

If you have an accident that leads to an injury and time taken off work, due to  the injury you and your business could take a hit financially. Personal accident insurance cover can help with this in that it will typically provide you with a lump sum for specified injuries to help cover your lost wages or to allow you to pay for someone to come in on a temporary basis until you’re back to full strength.

Cyber and data insurance

As a consultant, access to your computer system will be very important to your business. You may hold personal data about your customers, suppliers or even your employees on your computer. You may even do all your accounts online. With this in mind, you might want to consider cyber liability insurance, which is designed to support your business if your systems are compromised by things like malicious hackers who may cause damage or restrict access to the information you hold. Our advisors are on hand over the phone to discuss your cyber liability insurance requirements.

"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."
