Accountants are often times so inundated with attending to client’s financial needs that they don’t recognize the inherent financial risk in their own business operations. From handling client’s personal information to maintaining four walls to protect that information, accountant’s need business insurance. Learn how to reduce common risks associated with accounting firms such as yours, below:
Business Owners Policy (BOP)
A virtual necessity for all business owners, and a great building block to providing a suite of coverage, the BOP combines protection from all major property, liability and business income risks in one package. In addition to providing a cost effective way to manage your firm’s inherent risks, a BOP also allots the opportunity to customize it through adding coverage tailored to accounting firms specifically.
Optional coverage associated with the accounting industry that can be added to your package:
Most states require this coverage and often times have fines for failure to purchase it. Workers’ Comp essentially provides wage replacement and medical benefits to employees injured in the course of performing their duties.
Given everyone that owns a vehicle has personal auto insurance, many businesses feel this coverage is not necessary. Make sure you take the time to reconsider. Commercial Auto policies are beneficial for accounting firms due to the amount of traveling during normal operations. Whether it be running general errands or even transferring pertinent financial information to and from clients, commercial auto insurance will assure that you and your employees are properly covered.
