who we work with
Tide & Cashplus
As a limited company, you’ll need a business bank account to separate your business and personal finances.
Things to consider when choosing a business bank account:
- interest rates
- facilities, such as overdrafts
- monthly fees
- how much support you want
Safeguarding your business against risk is important because although disputes are rare, they can be expensive.
The following types of insurance are vital for limited company contractors:
- Professional indemnity insurance will protect you if an error or omission in your services causes third-party financial losses.
- Public liability insurance protects you if clients or members of the public suffer personal injury or property damage because of your business.
