Frequently asked questions

  • How much does office insurance cost?

    With no two businesses the same, how much you can expect to pay for office insurance will depend on a few factors, including

    • How much cover you’ll need
    • The size and nature of your business
    • The location of the business
    • How many employees you have
    • Your annual turnover
    • Your office contents
    • The footfall of your premises (this includes employees and visitors)
  • What type of businesses need office insurance?

    Most businesses with a physical office can benefit from office insurance, regardless of the size. It’s especially important for businesses that have expensive equipment, valuable inventory or a lot of people coming and going.

  • I work from home – do I still need office insurance?

    This depends on what you’re looking to insure and how your business operates. For example, if you’re just looking to insure your home office equipment and furniture, this should be covered under your home insurance.

    However, if you’re looking to insure your day-to-day operation, you might benefit from office insurance. It provides business interruption cover if you have to stop working for a period of time. It also covers your professional relationships, from employers’ liability to fidelity guarantee.

    You may also want to take out cyber insurance. It covers any costs following a cyber incident and offers support to help you manage the aftermath.

  • Can you cover my equipment outside of the office?

    Yes, you’ll be covered when you’re on-the-go for any equipment that you need to do your job. The policies we offer provide worldwide cover on portable office equipment, including laptops.
