Why Freelancer Insurance is Important

Working on a freelance basis – whether you’re a management consultant, business consultant, marketing consultant, change consultant, project or programme manager, training consultant, graphic designer, copy writer or another type of freelancer – these roles bring a unique freedom to work the way you want – when and where you want. But that freedom also brings risk.

Who covers your back if something goes wrong? Who pays the bills if, for instance, the loss or theft of crucial equipment leaves you unable to work temporarily? Could you afford to run out and buy replacements, just like that? What if a customer accuses you of a failure in your advice or service and threatens legal action?

Without the safety net of an employer watching your back, recovering from these kinds of setbacks, is down to you alone. That is why freelancer insurance is so important. A commercial combined insurance policy, tailored to your needs and yours alone, is a simple and effective way to protect against all these risks – so you can get on with running your freelance business, on your terms.

Terms and Conditions
* We randomly surveyed 54 new business policyholders (12.5%) with insurance start dates between 12 April 2019 and 1 August 2019. 93% made a financial saving by moving to smei, with an average saving of 15.96%. This data excludes commercial and residential insurance for landlords.

** Standard and optional cover may differ dependent upon insurer.

 

DO I NEED PUBLIC LIABILITY INSURANCE IF I AM SELF-EMPLOYED?

The freedom you gain from being your own boss means that you personally take on certain risks. Sole trader public liability insurance can cover legal costs and compensation in the event your work or advice results in injury to, loss or damage of property, or economic loss for a customer.

WHY SHOULD I USE A BROKER?

Using a broker to arrange your insurance may help reduce your workload and the associated time it takes you to search for your insurance. It is our aim to help you get value for money therefore we use the strength of our market position to negotiate with insurers, in advance, the product and premium pricing. We do this to help deliver the right product, at the right price for our customers. To present you with the options available to you, we compare insurance from a panel of UK insurers so that we can recommend a product to suit your business needs.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET A QUOTE?

You can get a quote by telephone. On average a quote will take around 10 minutes over the phone, depending on the complexity of the business requirements.

HOW LONG WILL IT BE BEFORE I AM COVERED?

If you are arranging insurance on the phone, you can be covered straight away, subject to a 10% deposit. The remaining payment can be set up within 7 days. Be sure to let us know you want cover to start immediately. However if you don’t want immediate cover, you can specify a start date that suits you.

WHAT ARE YOUR OFFICE OPENING HOURS?

We are open Monday to Friday, 8am until 6pm.
