What insurance do freelancers need?
Professional indemnity insurance
Clients pay for your knowledge and expertise, but what if you make a mistake? This is what professional indemnity insurance is for. If your advice causes your client to lose money, you could face a lawsuit, with legal costs and compensation to pay. Superscript's professional indemnity cover comes with media liability cover as standard, which means you're also covered for accidental copyright infringement.
Public liability insurance
Whether you're working from a home office, a client's office or even out and about, public liability insurance provides protection if you cause accidental bodily injury or property damage to a member of the public or a client while you're working.
Business equipment insurance
Whatever kit you rely on, be it a laptop, filming or other technical equipment, having it lost, stolen or damaged could leave you with a deep hole in your pocket. Business equipment insurance gives you the ability to have your broken or stolen equipment fixed or replaced.
Legal protection insurance
Unlike large companies with in-house legal teams, self-employed professionals don't usually have the convenience of specialist legal support. Legal protection insurance gives you access to specialist commercial legal support, a lifeline if you ever face a legal dispute or have questions about tax issues.
A cover often dismissed as irrelevant to smaller businesses and the self-employed, cyber insurance may be relevant for you, if your work involves handling or storing data, or taking card payments from clients. It provides protection in the form of specialist support and compensation legal costs in the event of cyber breach.
