Contractors Insurance

Protect Your Company, Clients & Employees

Do I need Insurance as a Contractor?

Contractor Insurance – Professional Indemnity, Public Liability, Employers’ Liability. The level of insurance and the type of insurance that is required usually depends on the client or agency and is often detailed in the paperwork. The cost of business insurance is borne by the Company rather than the directors personally.

At Gorilla Accounting, we recommend that all of our Limited Company contractor clients have appropriate business insurance in place. It’s important that contractors safeguard both themselves and their companies. We’ve partnered with experts, Kingsbridge Contractor Insurance, to make it easy for you.
