Accountants Professional Liability Insurance

Accountant professional liability insurance also known as errors and omissions insurance and professional indemnity insurance protects accounting businesses in the event of a lawsuit. This insurance financially protects the professional, in this case an accountant, from paying liability claims that arise as a result of their negligence, errors, mistakes, and other insured causes.

Accountants today service from individuals to billion dollar companies. The need and demand for their services is not just an advantage to individuals or businesses, it is a complete must. Without professional accounting, it can be hard or almost impossible for businesses to track the flow of their funds. This demand for Accounting services created an opportunity for Insurance companies to construct an Accountants Insurance policy.

A professional indemnity insurance for Accountants provides coverage in the case of a liability arising as a direct result of the insured’s services. When your clients face monetary damages or losses to their business as a result of your services, the situation may result in the client filing a law suit against you. Clients tend to file a lawsuit to recover from financial loses or damages that were a result of your services, your errors, or negligence when conducting your business. Your Errors and Omissions Insurance for Accountants policy provides financial coverage, subject to the policy limit, in the case of you being sued. If the nature of the claim is not an exclusion on the policy or a fraudulent activity on your end, your Accountants Professional Liability Insurance covers the claim against you, up to your liability limit. Keep in mind, if your clients are visiting the office to discuss their finances, you need to consider adding general liability insurance coverage to your company policy. This coverage provides protection in the event physical damages in the form of injuries and property damages occur.

Also, if you are using personal vehicles to meet clients at their offices, you need to look into insuring your vehicles under a commercial automobile insurance policy. It is no uncommon for an insurer to deny an auto claim if the vehicle is being driven for work as a commercial vehicle.
