Merit 3 Insurance There are many different types of insurance available when starting your business. In general, damage caused intentionally and contractual liability is not covered under liability insurance policies. It is good if you have insurance because if something's happens you can get compensation. The types of business insurance you will need will depend on what activities you will engage in. One type of business insurance is product business liability insurance. If you will sell products, you will want to purchase this type of insurance to protect you and your business against any business liability resulting from non-performance of any of the products you will sell. Likewise, if you will provide services to other people, you will also want business liability insurance to protect both you and the clients receiving your services. That way, if a customer claims to have suffered damages through your own qualified procedures, this type of insurance will protect personal possessions and pay for your protection against the claim. It also insures that a client who has suffered damages will be sufficiently rewarded. Another type of business insurance is replacement. This protects you against theft, and insures replacement of the stolen items. When purchasing replacement insurance, it is important to check whether or not it is partial or full replacement. Full is always preferable, since replacing items can become quite expensive. If you don't have liablitlty insurance your company its not illegal but the Health and Safety Executive will ask to see your certificate of insurance and any other relevant policies, when they inspect your premises. You can be fined up to �2500 for any day. Failure to display the certificate to inspectors can lead to a �1000 fine. ...read more.
