Cover for freelancers

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 for if you cause accidental injury or property damage to a member of the public while you're working.

Business contents insurance

Whatever kit you rely on, be it a laptop, filming or other technical equipment, having it lost, stolen or damaged could leave out with a deep hole in your pocket. Business contents 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 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, such as IR35.

Cyber insurance

A cover often dismissed as irrelevant to smaller businesses, cyber insurance may be relevant for you, if your work involves handling a large amount of data. It provides protection in the form of specialist support and compensation in the event of cyber breach.
