Why do Consultants need it?

Consultants are paid to provide specialist advice.

In the course of your work, you might come across a hard-to-please client who holds unreasonable expectations. In the case that you do not meet these expectations, or your client feels that you have not met them, you may be sued for failing to deliver the service that was promised.

Professional Indemnity insurance is your protection against potential losses arising out of acts, errors and omissions from a wide variety of consultancy services. Additionally, in many case s, insurance is a contractual requirement.

In addition, if your business/practice requires your customers or members of the public to visit your home or business or if you visit their premises, you should seriously consider taking out public liability insurance for your protection.

BizCover offers business insurance packs tailored specifically for Consultants, covering risks such as fire, business interruption, burglary, money, glass, electronic equipment, employee theft or portable valuables and income replacement.

3 things to consider when purchasing a Professional Indemnity policy:

Find a provider that:
  1. Offers multiple quotes from trusted Australian insurers
  2. Understands the coverage needs of Consultants – e.g. most Government contracts require a minimum of $10m Professional Indemnity cover
  3. Complies with current legislation and professional association requirements or to meet the requirements of many clients.

B Bowering 2013-10-27 As a small business operator, it seems to fall to late nights and weekends to get things done. So it's nice that the Bizcover website is comprehensive, and allows me to make decisions and be informed outside of the 9-5. Updating my cover details recently was also WAY easier than I thought it would be. Don't worry, I've recommended Bizcover to some of my friends also operating their own businesses. 5

T Chesher 2013-10-24 Service and cover is good. Premiums are right. They contact me multiple times when renewal is around, otherwise I don't hear from them all year (suppose that's good). Haven't had to call on their cover yet, so not sure how good that side of their busines is... 4
P Bergin 2013-10-24 This was the simplest and most effective way of getting comparative insurance quotes! I have struggled with getting insurance sales people to call back; when they did I had to fill in really, really long forms, and often I would not hear anything further from them. This was done in less than an hour and I am very satisfied. Thankyou 5
D Simonsen 2013-10-24 Fast and very cost competitive 5
