Home Business Insurance costs
If you’ve decided to start running a business from home, whether as your primary income or more of a side hustle – congrats! A home business can be very rewarding, in a lot of ways.
Of course, starting a business requires a lot of admin. This may include finding a suitable insurance policy.
Doing a bit of groundwork and figuring out exactly what you need, and how much you need to pay, can help you start doing business with confidence.
Do I need Business Insurance separate from my Home Insurance?
AAMI offers Business At Home Insurance, which combines Home and Contents Insurance with Business Insurance. This means you can cover your home, its contents or both, as well as get cover for your business needs, in one convenient policy.
How much does home business insurance cost?
There’s no one-size-fits-all home business insurance policy. Every business is going to have its own coverage requirements and considerations, and the policy you take out should reflect yours. For example:
- Do you have specialised equipment you need to insure in case of loss or damage?
- What about a vehicle you use for making deliveries?
- Do you keep cash at home as part of your business activities?
- Do you keep, make or sell consumables, like baked goods or other foods?
Each of these considerations – and many more – can be addressed by a particular cover. Conversely, any type of cover that you don’t need can simply be omitted when you get your business insurance quote.
An AAMI Business At Home Insurance policy premium will also be determined by the home insurance aspects, like the size and location of your home.
Given the variability and flexibility of business insurance policies, it’s impossible to offer a single dollar figure that represents how much your business insurance will cost, before you get a quote.
But don’t worry, it’s pretty easy to get an estimate before you buy.
