What insurance does ipro offer?

Insurance from ipro allows freelancers, contractors and self-employed professionals to create their own tailor-made package with a choice of insurance options.

Professional Indemnity insurance

Professional Indemnity insurance can take the weight off your shoulders by protecting you against legal defence costs and compensation payments for errors you make, or are accused of making, at work. Choose from £100K – £5m of cover, which includes what is known in the insurance game as ‘full retroactive cover i.e. it can cover claims brought against you for work you have done in the past, even if you had no insurance in place. How’s that for peace of mind?

Employer’s Liability insurance

If you employ anyone then employer’s liability insurance is a legal requirement. It can protect you and your employees by providing cover for both legal defence costs and compensation payments. Believe us when we tell you Employers Liability claims can run up to some seriously scary numbers. Why give yourself something else to worry about? Get covered today.

Public Liability insurance

If you cause someone an injury or damage their property in the course of your work then you need Public Liability insurance. Anything from bumps and bruises to serious damage, Public Liability claims can total millions. Here, at ipro, you can choose up to £5m of cover, forget compensation payments and legal fees, and do what you do best.

Business Equipment insurance

Every freelancer and contractor uses kit like laptops, phones, tablets and cameras to work. Add Business Equipment insurance to make sure that if something happened to your kit, you can replace all your tech and get back in business fast.

Management Liability insurance

With great leadership, comes great responsibility. If you are a director of a company then you have a personal liability for your actions. Scary stuff eh? But don’t worry; you can buy Management Liability insurance. Management Liability insurance can pay for legal defence costs as well as monetary awards, including for both HSE and IR35 investigations. We offer £100K of cover, and best of all you get access to unlimited 24/7 legal advice, all for the cost of about 15 minutes with a city lawyer.

Health and Safety policy

If you pay anyone else to work for you, or if clients, customers or supplier visit your premises, then the law may require you to have a written Health and Safety policy. We can help you stay legal and safe with a clear, easy-to-use template. And, if that’s not good enough, it’s another handy tool to help prove you are an independent self-employed professional, where the dreaded IR35 is concerned.
