ICAEW Office Insurance
Why do you need office insurance?
In any accountancy practice – regardless of size – accidents can happen that are beyond your control. The impact of incidents such as broken or stolen equipment, or damaged premises can be extremely harmful to the business.
Having the right office insurance is essential to protect you against damage to your office premises or equipment, minimising the interruption to your business that could lead to loss of income. This insurance provides peace of mind against risks such as fire and theft, even if the contents are temporarily away from the office.
