Choose from the most common types of insurance for sole traders, including:

Professional Indemnity Insurance
Mistakes happen - even to the most experienced contractors and sole traders.

Professional Indemnity insurance is designed to protect sole traders against claims of negligence or breach of duty, which can sometimes be made by a client after receiving professional advice or services from your business.

Public Liability Insurance

Could an accident at your worksite cause damage to another property - or injure a member of the public?

Public Liability Insurance is designed to provide protection for you and your business in the event a customer, supplier, or a member of the public are injured or sustain property damage as a result of your negligent business activities.

Personal Accident and Illness Insurance

If you’re a sole trader, and an accident or illness prevents you from working, the loss of income alone can be devastating.

Personal Accident & Illness (PA) insurance covers you for loss of income if you are unable to work as a result of an injury or illness, and generally will cover you whether or not you sustain an injury or develop an illness due to your work.
