Small Business Insurance Checklist


There are very few compulsory insurances that businesses are required to hold to operate. However, whilst there are only a few compulsory insurances, there are many optional insurance policies that are worth considering and utilising as a part of your risk mitigation strategy and approach.

Public Liability Insurance, whilst not compulsory, often is the first optional insurance that a business considers and given the takeup of Public Liability Insurance, it is almost worth considering it as compulsory insurance due to the risks that it can remove or reduce.

Tips to remember about Small Business Insurance:


  1. Your business will most likely change (grow or shrink) over the time of your insurance: make sure that you're levels of coverage match the reality of your business to ensure you are not over or underinsured.

  2. Premium Funding can assist with your cashflow: smoothing out a lumpy annual premium cost over 12 monthly payments. 

  3. Business packs can bundle together a few different insurance lines: However business packs might be more general in their approach rather than specific for your business. You need to work out how closely the business pack coverage aligns with your needs and requirements.

  4. Consider if your business needs extra insurance from particular insurance lines: Some businesses require greater levels of coverage from particular insurance lines to better align with their requirements. 

  5. Periodically review your insurance setup and small business requirements with an insurance broker: As your business changes over time, so does the inclusions and exclusions of insurance policies. Engaging with an insurance broker to undertake a review of your current insurance policies and what new insurance policies may be available. 

  6. Buy your small business insurance based on coverage requirements rather than purely on price. Getting coverage from your insurance is the most important requirement.
