Business insurance for accounting, audit and tax services businesses
Professional indemnity insurance
Professional indemnity cover from Superscript is one of the most advanced PI covers available online. It protects companies that provide advice or professional services to clients and is essential for accounting, audit and tax consultants. It covers compensation and legal costs if you make any mistakes in your services, fines, contract and IP disputes.
Accountants are targets for cyber-attacks and data breaches as they hold their clients’ most sensitive data. With GDPR now in force too, data must be protected. Cyber liability insurance covers you from a breach of regulations (where insurable by law), your liability for handling data, plus system rectification costs, PR expenses and financial loss due to system downtime.
Commercial legal protection
Commercial legal protection covers you for any legal costs incurred such as solicitors, barristers and expert witnesses – while also providing you access to day-to-day legal advice and tools. So, if you need help with drafting up a contract or handling an employment dispute, expert legal advice is at hand.
Contents and equipment insurance
Our contents and equipment cover protects your equipment, office furniture, documents and cash. Whether you're based in a home office or your own business premises, this policy will cover replacement costs so you can get back up and running in no time.
