Working from Home insurance

If you’re one of the growing number of people and businesses who now work from the home, you may need to check the insurance cover you have and whether it will give you the protection you need.

Many businesses run from home rely on standard home insurance to protect the risks they face. But, it is unlikely that your home insurance will cover your business equipment, materials, or stock or activities that you perform.

Whether you are a consultant, designer, cake maker, tutor or eBayer. Your business needs protection in the event of accident, injury or loss.

What is Working from Home Insurance?

Lloyds Bank Business Insurance Services offers a range of covers to suit your business needs. Speak to specialist insurance advisers about covers including:

Public Liability

When accidents happen, your business could be responsible for paying compensation in the event of a claim. Public Liability insurance can cover compensation and claimants costs for accidental injury to third parties or damage to their property.

Public Liability insurance can also cover an accident in your work area or relating to your business activities. This includes incidents on your premises as well as those that occur while doing business offsite.

Employers’ Liability

Covers legal liability for death or injury to employees caused in the course of their employment.

Products Liability

Provides cover for compensation for injury to third parties or damage to their property caused by products that you design, manufacture or supply.

Business Equipment

Your business equipment is important in the day to day operation of your business. You may need cover at your home premises and also whilst you are out on the road visiting suppliers or customers.

Loss or damage to your computer equipment by theft for example would be covered under the Business Equipment section of your policy.

Goods in Transit

When either collecting stock from suppliers, or delivering stock/finished goods to your end customer. There is a possibility that these items may be damaged or lost whilst in transit.

Goods in Transit cover will provide you with cover for loss or damage to these items during transit, minimising the financial impact this could have on your business.

Please note this is not a comprehensive list. Additional covers are available to ensure your business is suitably protected.

Do you give advice or provide a service?

If you give advice or provide a service when working for a client then you may need to consider Professional Indemnity insurance (also known as PI).

If a client alleges you have provided inadequate service or advice, Indemnity insurance can help to correct mistakes and cover legal costs.
