Accounting Insurance is important for accountants that have an eye for detail and a knack with numbers.
Generally, accountants are required to comply with a number of professional standards and legislation which require them to hold a certain level of cover while practicing. More specifically, accountants must hold a Professional Indemnity Insurance policy to protect them against potential losses occurring out of negligent acts, errors and omissions as a result of the services provided.
Such services include:
- General consultancy
- Corporate finance
- Insolvency work.
Having the right Accounting Insurance professional indemnity policy in place may provide cover for the following exposures:
- Incorrect tax advice / preparation
- Accounting / bookkeeping errors
- Conflicts of interest
- Business valuations
- Failure to comply with audit undertaking
- Misleading analysis and interpretation of numerical data
- Employee dishonesty (the selling or exchanging of confidential information to other organisations)
