EMPLOYER'S LIABILITY INSURANCE
If your business employs more than one person, it’s a legal requirement to have employer’s liability insurance. It counts as employing people if you pay someone a regular wage, and deduct National Insurance contributions and Income Tax from your employee’s pay.
Without the correct liability insurance, you’re at risk of a fine of up to £2,500 for every day your business is uninsured.

Legally, the minimum employer’s liability insurance you need should cover £5 million. As standard, Tradesure employer’s liability insurance provides cover for £10 million.
We offer combined liability insurance with additional cover that includes:
- Product liability insurance
- Directors’ and Officers’ insurance
