Helping new businesses get ahead in 2013
When starting a business, buying insurance may not be a top priority for most customers with so much else to think about - and the extra cost may seem unnecessary.
However, with all the work owners put into their businesses, they may have too much to lose to not be adequately covered. Government figures indicate one in five businesses suffers a major disruption every year (source: BIBA, 2012 based on 2011 data).
Richard Pitt, Head of U K Insurance Business Solutions, which arranges NatWest Business Insurance, comments: "We know that our customers invest a lot of time and effort in their businesses. By offering start-ups their first two months' cover for free, we are ensuring our customers are protecting their hard work against the unexpected, without having to worry about another cost in the crucial early stages of starting a new business."
Ensuring start-ups have the right insurance
Every business requires different covers, depending on variables such as industry sector, size, business activities, property and stock.
With over 20 years' experience, NatWest Business Insurance specialists understand the complexities of protecting all types of businesses. They can help new owners find the right solution, working closely with onsite insurers to tailor quotes to their specific risks.
