Doing Business in the UK

Doing Business in the UK

Arranging insurance is often one of the last things people consider when setting up shop in London – but it’s one of the first things they need at incorporation. And a little advanced planning will help avoid any nasty surprises!

What’s Mandatory in the UK?

Consider these first – they’re legal requirements so ignoring them can land you with a prosecution and hefty fines:

  • Employers’ Liability Insurance - your liability to employees for their injury or illness arising from the work they do.
  • Third Party Motor Insurance - mandatory if you use vehicles on the road in the UK/Europe.
  • Pensions – auto-enrolment legislation began in 2012, get the low-down by clicking here!

Critical Protection for your Key Assets & Liabilities

To bullet-proof your business you'll need insurance to cover your:

  • Property assets
  • Income streams & supply chains
  • Professional & product liabilities
  • Employees (healthcare and other benefit programs)
  • Intellectual property
  • Cyber liabilities
  • Directors & officers liabilities
  • Reputation & brand
