Insurance for accountants

Why do you need accountants professional indemnity insurance (PII)?

Advising clients on their finances comes with high levels of responsibility and risk. Mistakes can happen, but the impact of giving incorrect accounting advice would almost certainly result in your client’s business suffering financially.

Should your business be found responsible for providing inadequate advice that caused your clients to lose money, professional indemnity insurance for accountants will cover the cost of any compensation you are required to pay. It will also cover any legal costs incurred defending the claim.

As well as being mandatory for chartered accountants, having accountants' PI cover in place to deal with claims is vital to protect your business and reassure your clients.
