When you’re a self-employed bookkeeper, your whole day is spent dealing with numbers. Dividing, multiplying and subtracting to help keep things balanced and make sure your employers stay in the black.
But would you end up in the red if one of your clients took legal action against you because of something you did while working for them? It does happen, and even the best bookkeepers in the world can miss a zero or put a decimal point in the wrong place, which could add up to a potentially costly combination of legal costs and damages. A sum you really don’t want to deal with.
Cover you can count on
As you work in a profession where accuracy is everything, Professional Indemnity insurance should be the first thing to think about if you don’t wish to worry about errors at work leading to costly legal action.
It can cover legal costs, plus any damages awarded against you, up to your chosen limit, from just over £5 a month. And because it’s with ipro, it can also cover claims that are not yet known for work you did before you took out the policy – whether you had insurance or not.
