Insurance for Accountants

Clients of accountants expect everything to add up to the penny, especially given they trust you with their financial affairs and reporting. So if a mistake happens it’s crucial that the costly legal fees are covered, professionals take the weight off of you by handling the matter and freeing up your time, and that your reputation remains in tact.

Being a member of an accounting trade body means that it is a stipulation to hold certain insurances, including professional indemnity. Our policies cover you if you belong to ACCA, AAT, ICAEW, ICAS or CIMA, ensuring you meet the requirements to advertise your professional standing.

Accountants should not only hold professional indemnity insurance but also policies that cover their property, business interruption, directors & officers, business equipment, legal expenses, cyber, personal accident, fleet, and liabilities such as public liability and employers liability.
