What should I consider before purchasing insurance for my business?
Protecting your business from unexpected events and challenges is where business insurance comes into play, providing cover for when you need it most for things like theft, public liability claims and business interruption.
Fundamental insurance for Other Services
Cyber Liability insurance helps to protect you against claims and supports your profitability in the event of a cyber breach or attack. Chances are that you handle the personal (and billing) information of customers, and other sensitive data which you need to keep safe.
Contents insurance is designed to provide cover for your office contents (tables, chairs, cabinets), as well as machinery and stock when an insured event occurs – such as fire, storm or theft (only limited theft cover, for comprehensive theft cover see the Theft section).
If you own the building where your business activities take place, you should consider Buildings insurance.
Public Liability covers the many possible accidents that could happen in any business environment. This insurance is designed to provide protection for you and your business in the event that a customer, supplier or a member of the public is injured or sustains property damage as a result of your negligent business activities.
Theft is one of the most common insurance claims business owners file for. Your business might be the victim of theft or fraud from outside of your business, or sometimes one of your employees may steal from you and you’ll need Employee Dishonesty cover.
The right business insurance will cover you against acts of theft and fraud, whether these come from your own employees or from outside of your business.
Regularly selected insurance for Other Services
Business Interruption is important for continuity in any business. What happens if there is a fire, flood, storm or other event? This type of insurance covers your business for financial loss as a result of an interruption caused by an insured event (such as fire). This can also cover you if you are being prevented from accessing your premises.
Buildings are one of the most important assets for most businesses. This insurance can protect your business when your buildings are damaged due to fire, storm, earthquake, wind and more. You may also want to cover the Contents of your buildings (office equipment, machines and stock).
Many businesses depend upon a full range of equipment which includes laptops, computers, printers, computer-based cash registers, point-of-sale (POS) management systems, refrigeration systems, air conditioning, and sound systems.
These high-value items need to be specifically included in your business insurance policy to protect you in case of accidental damage due to flood, fire, snow, hail, wind, impact, explosion, subsidence, as well as malicious damage or theft and damage caused by power surges or power dips.
Employee dishonesty is important as your employees are fundamental to what your business does, but a few bad apples can cause your business to suffer. Having protection against losses from employee theft or fraud is crucial for most businesses.

Did you know?
If you are renting your business’s premises, part of your commercial lease may require you to take out glass cover.
Could this happen to my business?
A business was sued by a visitor to its premises after the visitor allegedly slipped and fell on some tiles that had been recently mopped. The plaintiff sued for damages and the insurance company covered the legal defence costs. The claim was dismissed, but the fees exceeded R100 000.
Thieves broke the windows and damaged the signage in the process to enter the premises and forced the staff to give them the contents of the safe, which included all of the cash received over the previous three days. The client thankfully had cover for money and glass included on their policy which allowed them to claim for the damages and loss incurred.
