If you are in business you will need insurance; without it your livelihood is at risk. An unexpected loss could cause financial hardship and destroy years of hard work and by law, some types of insurance are compulsory.

What types of insurance should I consider for a business? For businesses there are three main areas where you need to consider the insurance requirements of your business:
