Your questions, answered

How can I tell whether I’m a sole trader?

There are several different terms that relate to running a business on your own, so it’s useful to be clear about what “sole trader” means. If you’re self-employed and have no staff working alongside you, you’d probably be classed as a sole trader.

Freelancing is another form of sole tradership if you run your business alone with no employees. For insurance purposes, being a sole trader simply means getting the right cover in place, so you’re safeguarded against the unique risks faced by people in your circumstances.

Which types of insurance might I need?

If you run a business as a sole trader, a number of different kinds of insurance cover are likely to be relevant for you. As with anything else, though, your particular situation will be unique to you, and the protection you put in place needs to reflect this.

You may need to take out professional indemnity insurance, protect yourself against cybercrime, or consider personal accident cover. You might also be required to get public liability insurance. Our experts can talk you through each option and help you to work out what’s right for you.

Does my industry affect my requirements?

Different industries are subject to different risks, which means you need to put in place the right type of insurance for your circumstances. As our client, you’ll get a dedicated adviser who’ll really take the time to understand your operation.

If your work involves manual labour, you may need to be covered for personal injury. If you work with computer data, you might require cyber protection. Wherever your areas of risk lie, our experienced specialists will help you to identify them.
