Looking after the pennies

No matter how careful you are when it comes to handling your business takings, money can still be stolen or go missing.

Someone could break into your shop or office and steal cash from a till, locked box or safe. You could have money taken from you at an event, like a market or craft fair, or from your vehicle when travelling to and from work. You may have brought the day’s takings home with you, with the intention of going to the bank the next morning, only to experience a burglary.

While the money stolen may not amount to millions, losing hundreds or thousands of pounds could be a serious inconvenience to a small business. In some cases, you may be forced to halt some of your business activities until you are able to recoup the funds.

Insure against loss

Luckily, you can insure yourself against such losses by taking out a business insurance policy with us.

Whether you’re a shop owner or hairdresser, cake maker or accountant, we can cover you if your business takings are stolen from you or anyone working for you. We’ll reimburse you for the amount of money lost, so that you can continue running your business without any major interruptions.

The level of cover varies according to the nature of your business and the policy taken out.
