Accountants PI Insurance

Professional Indemnity Insurance is vital for any business professional but in particular Accountants who need cover to fulfil their professional association responsibilities as well as to protect their business from increasing numbers of claims.

We can offer cover from £50,000 up to £2 million limit of indemnity using our on-line service. You can of course request higher levels of cover by calling us but there will be additional queries raised with you in respect of this.

Associations requiring members to hold PI insurance are:

  • The Institute of Chartered Accountants in England & Wales (ICAEW).
  • The Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA).
  • The Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland (ICAS).
  • The Institute of Chartered Accountants in Ireland (ICAI).
  • The Chartered Institute of Taxation (CIOT).
  • The Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT).

However as Insurer cover holders we are looking to work with compliant low risk professionals with a good standing in the market, who are free from complaints and which will be reflected in the quality of cover and the premium levels offered.

In all we understand the needs of the business professional and the necessity to work with Insurers who have the desire to work in the financial markets, which as we know has been the subject of bad publicity over the last decade.

If you provide us with your full details we can provide instant on-line quotes for this class of business (subject to underwriting) or you can download an application form and submit to us by fax, post or email to obtain a written quotation.
