    Property Damage

    This generally refers to the buildings included in your business assets and includes the structure as well as permanent fixtures and the surrounding grounds (driveways, patios, paths and outbuildings). A policy can also be extended to cover machinery and equipment that is critical in running your business.

    Public and Products Liability

    This class of insurance is designed to protect a business in the event that an allegation of responsibility for personal injury or property damage is brought against the business from a third party.

    Cyber criminals are after data, looking to cause system interruption and obtain money.

    No matter how robust your protections are, antivirus can only combat known issues (antivirus companies have been hacked!) and cyber-criminals value all data, yours included. Their method of attack can take many forms.

    Management Liability (D&O)

    Traditionally known as Directors & Officers Insurance, Management Liability Insurance protects company directors, senior managers and officers of charities, boards and committees if a negligence claim is brought against them in court or at an employment tribunal.

    Loss of Licence

    As a business, you strive to comply with licensing laws but despite this, your alcohol licence can still be revoked by your Local Authority due to external circumstances beyond your control, such as public nuisance and crime and disorder.

    Loss of licence insurance protects against losses from having your alcohol licence revoked and can cover costs and expenses incurred when applying to regain it.

    Employers’ Liability

    Employers’ Liability insurance is a legal requirement if you employ staff and provides cover if a member of staff is injured or suffers an illness as a result of your business activities.
