Limited Company Insurance FAQs

Question

Do I need professional indemnity insurance for my limited company?

Answer

Whilst indemnity insurance is not a legal requirement, most ltd companies cannot afford to be without it. Having a claim raised against you, even if it is not successful, can be very costly to defend. Our limited company insurance, if it includes professional indemnity cover, will not solely pay out for legal and defence costs, but should you have been at fault, will additionally pay compensation awards up to the policy limit selected by you.

Question

Do I need to tell my employees that I have employers' liability insurance?

Answer

Yes, employers' liability insurance is a legal requirement and we will provide you with a certificate of employers' liability insurance that you must display prominently, where your employees can read it. You can also display your certificate electronically provided you make it clear that your employees know how and where to find it.

Question

Can you cover my limited company for seasonal changes in stock?

Answer

Yes. If you are a retail limited company and the amount of stock you possess fluctuates substantially in different seasons, we can allow your ‘sums insured’ amount to be increased by an agreed percentage for your busy times of the year. Just let your adviser know if you wish to add this into your limited company insurance package.

Question

If one of my employees has an accident at work, what should I do?

Answer

Depending upon the type and severity of the accident: We recommend that you:

  • Meet your legal obligation to record accidents in your accident book.
  • Report all accidents to your insurers
  • Allow your insurers to investigate and advise you of the best course of action to be taken.
  • Do not accept responsibility or agree to pay compensation even if you think it is obvious that it is your fault.

If you accept liability before referral to your insurers, then you could prejudice your insurers' ability to deal with any claim made against you.

Question

Can you cover money kept on my limited company's premises?

Answer

Yes, we can add cover for storing money on your ltd company's premises. Depending on the amounts involved there will be terms as to how you should store cash in order to minimise risk. Ask your adviser for details or check your policy document.

Question

Can I pay in instalments?

To help you manage the cost of your limited company insurance premiums, we offer a quick and easy direct debit scheme for spreading payment over ten months. Please visit our dedicated Direct Debit page to find out more.
