How it works

Professional Indemnity is designed to protect businesses that give professional advice or provide services to clients.

If a client claims a mistake your business made caused them injury or financial loss, Professional Indemnity covers the cost of your legal defence and damages you have to pay.

Who needs it?

If you give advice or provide professional services, Professional Indemnity can help prevent a mistake from costing your business.

It can help businesses like accountants and bookkeepers, IT specialists, advertising agencies and management consultants.

Why is it important?

Legal costs to defend yourself against any claim can be significant, and they can mean interruptions to your cash flow and disruption in your business.

Professional Indemnity can cover you for some unexpected costs like damages, claims investigations, public relations consultants and more.

Still have questions?

How much cover do I need?
Every business is different, and the amount of cover you might need depends on lots of things, including the kind of work you do, how likely it is you’ll need to make a claim, and whether there are minimum amounts of cover you need to work with your clients.

When you get our Professional Indemnity, you choose between four levels of cover - $1 million, $2 million, $5 million and $10 million.
How much does Professional Indemnity cost?
The cost depends on many things including the size of your business and the amount of cover you choose.

The fastest way to see how much Professional Indemnity costs for you is to get a quote.
What’s the difference between Public Liability and Professional Indemnity?
This can be confusing because they’re both designed to protect you if someone claims your business caused injury or damage.

The main difference is that only Professional Indemnity covers claims made against you because of the professional advice or services you provide to your clients.
