Small business solutions
Sole traders and small businesses have different insurance, financial services and people management needs to larger businesses.
Within our business we have a dedicated team that specialise in solutions for smaller operations. We know that while you don't want to spend any more time or money than necessary on meeting the regulatory requirements pertaining to things like insurance, workers compensation or human resources, it is important to protect yourself, your business and your employees should something go wrong. That is why we have a range of solutions designed just for sole traders, contractors and small businesses, so you can get back to running your business with peace-of-mind.
When considering insurance for your businesss, off-the-shelf products may seem adequate at first glance. However, take a closer look and you'll soon realise they don't take into consideration the nuances and specifics of your business, and may contain exclusions that cause significant negative impact and leave you exposed. Avoid this common mistake and talk to an experienced advisor that knows your industry and your business needs today.
