Bookkeeper Insurance

What is it?

Bookkeeper insurance, also known as Professional Indemnity insurance, protects bookkeepers from financial losses arising from client claims due to errors or omissions in their work. It can cover legal fees, damages, and other costs of defending claims.

Bookkeeping is an important aspect of any business, and bookkeepers play a critical role in managing a company’s financial records. However, errors or omissions in bookkeeping can lead to serious financial consequences for both the bookkeeper and the company they work for. That’s where bookkeeper insurance comes in.

Why do you need Professional Indemnity Insurance?

Bookkeepers can be held liable for various errors or omissions, including:

  • Mistakes in financial statements
  • Misclassification of expenses and
  • Failure to detect fraud or embezzlement.

Without bookkeeper insurance, sole traders could be held personally responsible for any damages or losses resulting from these errors.

Additionally, many clients require bookkeepers to carry insurance as a condition of doing business. Having insurance not only protects the bookkeeper’s assets but also helps to project a professional image to clients and prospects.
