View Full Version : Business Insurance for a Ltd Company

11-07-2005, 06:20 PM
We've recently set up a limited company. Would someone help us identify what is *legally* needed for insurance?

We operate a new media and marketing agency, operating out of an office.

Do we *really* need:
* Professional Indemity Insurance?
* Public Liability Insurance?
* Business assets, equipment and office contents insurance?

We are not planning to employ anybody until next year.

Who are the best people to get a quote from for these insurance areas?

Is there a company that offers an all-in-one business insurance service?

Thank you.

The best place to get a quote for your business is from a local Commercial Insurance Broker. They will be able to advise you on all of the necessary cover required and I suspect that they will recommend an 'Office Package' policy which incorporates a number of different types of cover under the one policy. Normally Property and Liability with some other optional covers.

All the best!

I have my insurance through a company called your insurance group, and they are brokers for AXA policies.
I'd recommend making sure you are covered for all the aspects you mention, you may be surprised how little it costs!
for example, i have both employers 5m and public liabilty insurance 10m, plus stock of 20k covered on my policy, for 29 inc the interest i get for paying over the year. For 1 day, it is better to be safe then sorry!
