Whatever your industry or the size of your business, we understand that your time is valuable. That’s why when it comes to your insurance, we provide you with a single point of contact to look after everything.
We take the time to understand your insurance needs so that we can best identify the right type of insurance to protect your business and your assets. In the unfortunate event of a claim, we also manage this entire process for you.
We provide advice on all types of business insurance, including:
Professional Indemnity Insurance
Anyone can make a mistake – but if your business is found liable for negligence, the costs can be financially devastating. Not only can it lead to an expensive lawsuit, but your business’ hard-earned reputation may be damaged as a result.
That’s why professional indemnity insurance matters – help protecting your assets and brand if your advice or services cause a client to take legal action against you.
Professional indemnity insurance is mandatory in some industries, such as medicine, accounting, law and financial advisers – with the requirements differing from state to state.
But even in cases where it’s not required by law, it’s recommended for anyone who is providing professional services or advice in exchange for a fee – like engineers, graphic designers, IT consultants and more. And regardless of your legal obligation, it’s often a customer requirement that you have this cover in place.
Public and Product Liability Insurance
If an accident or unforeseeable incident causes damage or injury to someone (other than your employees), you may be found legally liable to cover the costs.
Public liability insurance can help to protect your business from the financial risk of liability claims – giving you the certainty you need to trade with confidence.
While public and product liability insurance isn’t mandatory for most businesses, it is recommended for all companies. That’s because the unpredictable nature of accidents makes them hard to prevent – and the costs of being sued can be extraordinarily high.
Business Interruption Insurance
If your business suffered an unexpected disruption, such as a fire, flood or storm, or a major supplier closes because of one of these events, how long would it take to get it up and running again? And how much would you lose along the way?
Business interruption insurance can help make sure your business keeps running smoothly after an unexpected event, by covering the turnover that is lost – so you can recover and rebuild.
For most business owners, there are ongoing expenses that you need to pay even if you’re not generating any revenue – like staff wages, supplier invoices, rent or loan repayments.
Business interruption insurance can get you through a temporary crisis by protecting your cashflow – so you can pay these expenses and help ensure the future of your business.
Management Liability Insurance
When you’re running a business, you may be personally liable for any actual or alleged breaches of the Corporations Act. And it’s not just large companies that are exposed – small and medium business owners and officers could be at risk as well.
Management liability insurance covers the costs of defending directors, managers and employees against any claims that are the result of their actions or decisions.
If you are faced with unexpected liability costs, management liability insurance can protect your business and personal assets, such as your home, from being sold to cover the cost of paying claims.
Working on the land brings many rewards – but just as many risks. As a farm owner, you’re vulnerable to bushfires that can destroy livestock or damage your buildings and other property; machinery breakdown which can cost you time and money; personal illness or a serious accident; or even a claim from a guest injured on your property.
That’s why farm insurance can help protect your farm and its produce, and the wellbeing of you, your family and the people that pass through your property.
Cyber protection insurance is a relatively new form of cover. It’s designed to help protect your business from the financial impact of computer hacking or a data breach.
Cyber protection insurance is a relatively new form of cover. It’s designed to help In February 2017, the Senate passed the Privacy Amendment (Notifiable Data Breaches) Bill 2016 – setting up a mandatory nationwide data breach notification scheme. This means if you spot a security breach which may cause unauthorised access or disclosure of personal information, you’re legally required to report it to the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner within 30 days. You’ll also need to notify the people whose information has been affected.
If your business has a website or electronic records, you’re vulnerable to cyber hackers. In fact, it’s likely that your business will suffer a cyber attack at some stage.
A cyber attack could cost your business more than money. It could also threaten your intellectual property and put customers’ personal information at risk – which could damage your reputation.
