Choose from the most common types of insurance for sole traders, including:
Professional Indemnity InsuranceMistakes 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.

At the end of the tax year, I just give my tax return a quick look over, give Hnry the thumbs up, and they lodge it all for me. I don’t need to go to the ATO or do anything myself. It’s just automatically done.

In the past, I had tried other accounting software to do my GST returns - assuming they’d send it all from the accounting software. I soon realised after receiving an unexpected tax bill I hadn’t actually paid it. Now, with Hnry, it’s all done for me automatically.

As soon as my client has paid me - Hnry sends me an email telling me I just got paid. The money goes into my Hnry Account, from which Hnry deducts my Superannuation, Medicare, income tax, and GST - and then they give me the rest!

I can send an invoice, then the payment goes straight into my Hnry account. Hnry allocates money to my taxes, Super, Medicare and student loan, as well as GST. Within a couple of hours, I then get the rest of the money into my own personal bank account.
