We have helped new start up professional businesses arrange their insurances since 1998. We will fact find and get to understand your business so we can make a fair presentation of your risk to Insurers before tailoring a policy specific to your needs. If you’re new to PII, the following is an idea of the things that Insurers typically want to know when underwriting a Professional Indemnity risk:

The type of business and your experience:

  • The legal entity of your business: A sole trader or forming a limited company or partnership
  • The names of  the principal, directors and partners working in the practice
  • How much experience the principal, directors and partners have in your profession and any relevant qualifications that apply

An estimate for your first year of trading:

  • An estimate of your work for the first 12 months of your business
  • A realistic estimate of your fee turnover you expect to invoice
  • The areas of work you will specialise in and focus on

The largest Contract / Project sizes you expect to become involved with:

  • An estimate of your largest overall contract / project value or valuation amounts that you expect to become involved with in your first year of trading
  • Your specific role in contracts e.g. acting as a Principle Designer, Project Manager, Fire Risk Assessor, Quantity Surveyor, Valuation Surveyor, Health & Safety Advisor etc.,

Overseas Work:

  • Details of non-UK work and the type of contract, the law and legal jurisdiction applicable
