Home Office Cover with Performance Direct

Not all home insurance policies offer cover for running a business and working at home. It's imperative that you notify your insurer if this is something that you intend to do.

Why you might need Home Office Insurance

Your home office furniture and equipment might not be covered under standard home policies. You may also intend to have clients visit your home and it's vital that you disclose this to your insurer so that the correct cover can be offered for your situation. 

Importance of Business Insurance

There's a common misconception that standard home insurance covers business operations, but it often doesn't, to ensure your business assets and services are protected, it's essential to have a dedicated business insurance policy in place. If you require business insurance and would like to speak with one of our business insurance team click here.  

Home insurance may cover clerical work but not all business activities. Always inform your insurer if you're working from home, especially if it involves non-clerical tasks, to avoid policy invalidation.

Coverage for Garden Offices

Most home insurance policies don't cover outbuildings used for business purposes. Whether it's a shed workshop or a garden yoga studio, inform your insurer about business use to ensure proper coverage.

To ensure your home-based business is adequately protected, talk to an expert at Performance Direct who will help you find the right policy with the appropriate level of cover you require at the right price.
