2. As a self-employed/Limited Company business what types of Insurance cover are compulsory?
It is advisable to consider all elements of insurance to protect you from a variety of risks within your market.

Often under contract, you are required to carry Professional Indemnity insurance cover. From time to time you may also be required to have Public and Employers Liability cover.

3. How long does it take to arrange cover?
The application process is on-line to provide a fast and efficient service. Once you have applied you should expect to receive an email to confirm whether or not the application has been accepted within 24 hours, depending on volumes of applications. Once payment has been received we estimate a turnaround of 10-14 days. CPA will endeavour to do this quicker but if eligible under the terms of the scheme, cover will take effect immediately payment is received.

4. Who and what is covered under the scheme?
The scheme is designed for Computer Contractors, Design Engineers, Interim Managers, Management Accountants and Management consultants for whom we try to have a wide acceptance level. These persons can be defined as self-employed businesses, whether limited company or sole proprietor, who undertake work on a contractual basis for third parties resolving Information Technology issues. The cover is not designed for manual labour, stock or the sale of hardware - for further clarification please contact Caunce O'Hara by email at rachel@caunceohara.co.uk quoting 'Shout99 offer'.

5. Who provides the insurance and how can you be so competitive?
Insurance is arranged by a variety of insurers including NIG and DAS and under binding agreement between Underwriting Syndicates at Lloyd's. It is for this reason and the fact that the application is processed on-line that this comprehensive cover can be provided so competitively. CPA provides one of the widest wordings available with the lowest excesses.

11. Professional Indemnity: What is retroactive cover?
Retroactive cover applies solely to Professional Indemnity Insurance. Once this class of insurance is arranged, it will cover you for any future claims which may relate back to an occurrence which pre-dates the date on which the insurance policy commenced as far back as the date on which your business, in its current form, was established.

For this type of insurance, cover can only be confirmed after receipt of a declaration, at inception or renewal, that you are not aware of any circumstances which could give rise to a claim.

12. What if I do not qualify for the scheme; can I still get cover?
Your internet application will be referred to the scheme underwriter for further consideration. If still considered to be unsuitable for the scheme, in some cases CPA may be able to offer terms from the open market.

For clarification of any queries not covered above please advise us by emailing rachel@caunceohara.co.uk providing your telephone contact details and quoting 'Shout99 offer'.
