Commercial Property Insurance: If you rent an office, you’ll need to protect your premises. Commercial Property policies cover a very broad range of damage, including fire, certain types of water damage, explosions, and more.
This policy will cover your property, such as: renovations, electronic equipment like computers, fixtures & fittings, furniture like chairs and tables, , and other miscellaneous property.
Public Liability Insurance: With an office, you may entertain many clients coming in and going out of your business premises every day. If any of your clients get injured due to your negligence (e.g. slipping in your office due to a wet puddle), you could suffer a personal injury lawsuit. A Public Liability policy will protect you if you get sued for causing injuries or property damage to others. It covers legal costs like lawyer’s costs (which can be massive), and settlements/damages that you may need to pay.
Work Injury Compensation Insurance (WICA Insurance): MOM requires businesses to carry this insurance for every manual worker, and all workers who get paid $2,600/month and less. It’s highly advisable to purchase this for accounting staff, even if most work is office-based. If your employees travel to meet clients, and they get injured on the way, Singapore law requires you to compensate these employees for their medical expenses.
WICA Insurance covers work-related medical expenses for injuries, or sickness. This includes Covid-19 infections due to work.
Business Interruption Insurance: This covers your operating expenses if you can’t run your accounting business, due to a covered reason – for instance, if a fire damages your office premises. This is a great cover to have, because it helps you to pay for costs like rent, salaries, and other overhead while you can’t generate revenue.
Cyber Insurance: Very useful for clients to cover themselves against the cost of cyber breaches. Covers the cost of restoring IT systems after a breach, data liability, and business interruption costs if you can’t run your business due to a breach.
