It is important for any professional offering advice or services as part of their work to protect themselves against claims of negligence. The professional services organisations we support, includes:

  • Accountants and financial planners

Protecting your business

Companies that perform professional services for others occasionally make mistakes such as overlooking a critical piece of information, misstating a fact, communicating ambiguously, or simply forgetting or misplacing something. Actions brought against a professional services provider can arise from allegations such as:

  • Error, omission, or negligence in providing a service
  • Failure to provide a service
  • Fraud
  • Improper documentation
  • Mismanagement
  • Misrepresentation of facts
  • Non-disclosure
  • Violations of state and federal law (e.g. violation of right to privacy).

Gallagher is well placed to provide practice advice on the best-fit insurance cover to help professional services firms protect themselves against the potential losses and costs of errors and omissions.

Specialist insurance for accountancy professionals

As an accountant, your clients trust you with their financial wellbeing. They rely on your advice and to always act in their best interests. That's why insurance for accountants is so important.

With the wide range of advisory and professional services accountants offer, it's vital that you have insurance in place to protect you and your business against any losses that could potentially occur from errors, omissions and negligent acts.

Professional Indemnity Insurance for accountants

Professional indemnity insurance for accountants is fundamental, and a requirement for membership of your professional associations. Professional indemnity insurance is a specialised area and should be arranged with an insurance broker with expertise in your area of business.

For many years Gallagher has provided tailored professional indemnity insurance for accountants. Our experience and expertise enables us to provide you with the support you require throughout the policy duration and the right advice.

In addition to professional indemnity cover, we can include cover for the following activities which are often uncommon with other providers:

  • Business valuations
  • Mortgage finance broking
  • Insolvency
  • Audit activities
  • No part IVA exclusions

We also offer your practice unlimited reinstatements and payment for legal costs and expenses, as benefits in addition to the policy limit of indemnity.

We understand that all accountancy practices are different. In addition to  professional indemnity insurance, there are other risks to your business we can help mitigate. Our expert team will work with you to understand your business prior to recommending a comprehensive insurance program. The following policies are an example of the kind of protection that you should consider:
