How financial services liability insurance protects your small business

Accounting, bookkeeping and financial advising liability insurance can help cover costs if you find yourself in the unfortunate situation of being accused of causing an injury or damaging property, or if someone says that your work mistake caused financial losses. 

We combine two types of liability insurance in our small business insurance packages:

Professional liability insurance (also known as errors and omissions), covers you for cases where you are accused of not having done your job properly, whether that’s true or not. If your clients sue you for making a mistake in your paperwork that led to them losing out on significant tax advantages and paying more than they had to, professional liability coverage will help pay for costs to defend your small business or fix the problem.

General liability provides coverage for expenses related to physical injuries that could happen at your office or accidental damage to someone’s property.

Other important business insurance coverage for financial advisors, accountants and bookkeepers

Liability insurance is a good start to making sure you’re covered but you can also customize your business insurance to protect your employees, your vehicles and your business property.

We typically recommend: 

Workers’ Compensation for accountants

Workplace injuries happen more frequently than you might think, especially in your line of work. Workers’ comp makes those situations easier by helping to pay for medical bills for injuries and illnesses that happen to you or your employees while on the job. Workers’ comp can also help to cover lost wages while recuperating from tripping over a computer cord in a client’s office

This coverage is required for businesses with employees in every state except Texas.

Learn more about workers’ comp.

 

Commercial Auto insurance for financial advisors

You’ll need commercial auto insurance in most states if you own work vehicles that are titled to your business. 

You can use a commercial auto policy to insure your personal vehicle if you use that vehicle for your business, but you can’t apply your personal car insurance to your company car. So if you drive your own car to meet with clients or visit clients’ business locations, it probably won’t be covered under your personal car insurance.

Commercial Property insurance for bookkeepers

Financial advisors, tax preparers and accountants who own or rent physical spaces will need property insurance to help protect business equipment, inventory and furniture. If your business property is damaged due to a covered event, such as a burst water pipe or fire, property insurance can help with replacement costs or repairs.
