Professional Indemnity Insurance for Chartered Accountants Advantage

Comprehensive Cover

Cover all claims made against you for actual or alleged failures unintentionally and in good faith. These claims are typically made by irate customers. Your policy will also cover losses that you may sustain, by reason of fraudulent or erroneous entries in any share or debenture register or record, relative to the registration, transfer, transmission, holding of any relevant document.

Legal Support

It will cover Chartered Accountants for defence costs wherever such costs have been incurred. It will also reduce the probability of loss in income from business interruption in case Chartered Accountants had to defend against an allegation.

Original Retroactive Date

Claims related to any event occurring after the retroactive date are covered. This is the start date when the first professional indemnity insurance was bought. So, if you have an insurance in force for the past three years and there is a suit related to an incident that took place two years ago that will also be covered.

Peace Of Mind

It gives you peace of mind to operate your business confidently and safely, in the knowledge that you’ll be covered if any inadvertent mistakes or dissatisfied clients comes back to sue you.

Why Claims Get Rejected?

Exclusion Of Pre-Policy Claims

  • The policy will not cover work carried out before the policy was bought. If there is a break in your renewal then the retroactive date is reset to the start of the new insurance. We prevent this by ensuring timely renewal.

Incorrect Information

  • If you provide wrong information at any stage, it will result in claim rejection. For example, you may not have told the insurer about a pre-existing Country Court Judgement (CCJ) or pending criminal cases. Such cases are treated as non-disclosure of information which results in claim rejection.

Deliberate Omissions

  • It includes any acts or omissions you deliberately or recklessly commit, condone or ignore. It may including any actual or alleged shortcoming in the work. These cases are common exclusions under the policy.

Theft Protection

Lost or stolen documents, whether hard copies or information held on PCs or laptops. The cost of retrieving data is also included.

Add-on Cover

Extensions can be purchased to cover overseas litigation, in case you have foreign clients. An emergency cover can be purchased that provides money to you at short notice.

Retroactive Cover

Retroactive Cover is the benefit you will enjoy on timely renewal. This will ensure that your claims from work you did before in previous year will be considered.
