Important things to know when comparing Business Insurance.

  • Type of Insurance: Understand the different types of insurance and assess which ones your business needs. Some common types include Public Liability Insurance, Professional Indemnity Insurance, and Workers Compensation Insurance.

  • Coverage: Review the extent of coverage of each policy. Ensure the policy covers all aspects your business needs protection for, including property damage, legal liability, employee-related risks, and business interruption.

  • Policy Exclusions: Be aware of any exclusions in the policy to ensure your business is fully covered. Exclusions are specific conditions or events that are not covered by the policy.

  • Cost: Compare the premiums, excess, and other costs associated with the insurance policy. Opt for a policy that provides ample coverage at a reasonable cost.a
  • Insurer’s Reputation: Choose an insurer with a good reputation for handling claims fairly and promptly. You can check reviews, ratings, and complaints to gauge the insurer’s reputation.

  • Claims Process: Understand the claims process, including the documentation required and the timeframe for claim settlement. A simple and quick claims process is preferable.

  • Policy Limit: Evaluate the policy limits to ensure they are adequate to cover potential losses. Avoid underinsurance, as it can lead to significant financial strain on your business in the event of a claim.

  • Legal Compliance: Make sure the insurance you choose complies with Australian legal requirements, especially for compulsory insurances like Workers Compensation Insurance.
  • Additional Benefits: Look for policies that offer additional benefits or add-ons that are relevant to your business needs.
    Review Periodically: Regularly review your insurance policy to ensure it remains suitable for your business as it grows and evolves.

  • Professional Advice: Consider seeking advice from an insurance broker or consultant who can help analyze your business risks and guide you in choosing the right insurance.
