Where are you based?
Insurance is really important. Professional indemnity and professional liability insurance helps protect your business against the cost of settling or defending a client’s claim that there is a problem with the work you have done for them.
This could be where a client only alleges you have given incorrect advice or that you made a mistake which has cost them money. Your clients may ask you to have professional indemnity cover as a contractual requirement, or if you are applying for a tender.
