Your knowledge and expertise are what win you work, secure your contracts and why your clients pay you. But if you made a mistake, your client could hold you responsible for any financial loss and get you to pay it back.

Professional Indemnity insurance (sometimes referred to as Professional Liability insurance) can not only cover those losses, but also to pay for defence costs. Crucial if you think a mistake wasn’t made or wasn’t your responsibility, and you want to clear your name.

Professional Indemnity Insurance for Contractors.

Our business cover in detail:

Not all contractor insurance policies are the same. However, in the UK all professional indemnity policies work on what is known as a ‘claims made’ basis, which means the policy in force at the time of the claim is the one that reacts, no matter when the work was actually carried out. Unlike many other policies, ipro’s Professional Indemnity for contractor insurance automatically provides full retroactive cover all the way back to when you started out on your own, so you can be sure that 100% of your work, whenever it was performed, can be covered by your policy.

For example, if you carried out work two years ago and the mistake is discovered today, it’s the policy you have in force today that would respond. With some insurance policies, you also share the limit of indemnity (the maximum amount an insurer would pay) with other businesses. This is particularly common if you are part of an umbrella organisation or you are part of an affinity group where the insurance comes as part of your membership fee.
