Eyebrow and eyelash tinting insurance protects your business against unexpected losses.
It is usually bought as a package that contains a number of different types of insurance to cover the various risks that you face. The main type of insurance is public liability insurance, but the package can also include:
- Products liability insurance
- Employer’s liability insurance
- Property insurance
- Legal expenses insurance
- Personal accident and sickness insurance
Public liability insurance covers you if a compensation claim is made against you. Claims can be made against you if you’ve done something or failed to do something and that has resulted in someone being injured or their property being damaged.
Compensation claims can be expensive to settle. Even a minor accident can result in a four-figure settlement and a claim for a serious injury can often result in settlements in excess of £250,000.
As well as covering any compensation awarded, your liability insurer will also pay any associated costs and expenses, including any legal fees that are incurred as a result of the claim. Your public liability insurer will also deal with any complex legal arguments that are involved.
Standard public liability insurance only covers compensation claims involving personal injury or property damage so you should make sure that your policy contains a financial loss cover extension. This extends the policy so it covers compensation claims for purely economic losses.
A standard policy will also exclude cover for compensation claims arising from professional activities. This is a problem because eyebrow and eyelash tinting is a professional activity. Eyebrow and eyelash tinting insurance should contain a treatment risk cover extension to address this potential gap in cover.
This is similar to public liability insurance, but rather than covering compensation claims that arise due to something you’ve done, it covers claims that arise as a result of defects in products that you have sold or supplied.
This type of insurance is also similar to public liability insurance, but it covers compensation claims made by your employees rather than claims made by members of the public and other third parties.
Employer’s liability insurance is a legal requirement if you employ anyone, even if you’re only employing people on a part-time or a temporary basis. There are severe penalties if you employ anyone and don’t have this type of insurance.
Property insurance covers you if your business equipment is accidentally damaged or stolen. This includes your business premises if you own your own premises or are responsible for its insurance due to the lease.
It’s easy to think that you don’t need property insurance, particularly if you don’t need to insure your business premises. However, it can be surprising when you work out the total value of your business property when you factor in the value of the computer equipment you use to manage your business.
This type of insurance covers you if you become involved in legal action. A number of different types of legal action are covered, including:
- Disputes with neighbours
- Disputes with clients
- Contractual disputes
- Tax/VAT inspections
- Employment tribunals
- Criminal charges
As well covering the legal costs, your legal action will also help you deal with the legal action.
Most people remember to insure their business property and they remember to insure themselves if someone else is injured or has their property damaged. But they forget to insure themselves.
Personal accident and sickness insurance protects you if you are injured or fall ill. It pays a weekly benefit while you’re unable to work and it pays a lump sum if you’re permanently incapacitated.
