Business Insurance Policies

Professional Indemnity

Professional Indemnity insurance – often referred to as PI or PII – is a fundamental insurance for those who provide advice as part of their service, covering the legal costs and compensation arising from claims that allege an error or omission in providing those services. It can often be a requirement for certain trades, such as accountants, and with a minimum cover level of £1m. 

Public Liability

Public Liability (PL) Insurance is one of the main insurances taken out by businesses, protecting them from one of the most common pitfalls faced in todays world – that of the legal costs and compensation involved when an allegation or a claim is made by a client or a member of the public that has suffered injury or property damage as a result of an accident on your property.

Employers Liability
Employers Liability (EL) Insurance provides cover for legal representation and compensation arising from claims made against your company in respect of bodily injury or damage to property suffered by employees. It’s a legal requirement for any business that has employees, has cover at a limit of £10m as standard, but can only be bought as an add-on to a Public Liability policy.

Combined Policies

Commercial combined policies include all the key insurances in one. It’s the most common option for businesses, providing complete protection, is tailored to their exact requirements, and allows them to easily administer one policy than having the hassle of multiple separate ones.

Specialist Profession Insurances

Many UK professions have membership bodies that require their members to hold a specific type of insurance. The most common professions requiring this include; Accountants, Architects, Construction Contractors, Estate Agents, Engineers and Surveyors, all of which Roots has the ability to cover.

Commercial Vehicle Insurance

Policies for cars, vans, trucks and more, both individual and as a fleet, cover a far wider range of uses than a personal one – and crucially you’re protected if you travel to and between different locations for work, if you drive employees or colleagues around and if you use it for work.
