You must get Employers’ Liability (EL) insurance as soon as you become an employer - your policy must cover you for at least £5 million and come from an authorised insurer.
EL insurance will help you pay compensation if an employee is injured or becomes ill because of the work they do for you.
You can be fined £2,500 every day you are not properly insured.
You can also be fined £1,000 if you do not display your EL certificate or refuse to make it available to inspectors when they ask.

We have a very good long-term business relationship with Taiping. If you mentioned that you were introduced by TaxBusters and quote our reference No. D00110 when you make your application, you will definitely get the cheapest quotation in the market. (Anyway, you can compare the quotations with other companies by yourself). Also, if you have already covered by the employer's liability insurance currently, we were told that: you will be given a lower quotation than your current one (at least they will match the lowest market quotation for you) if you could provide the certificate from your current insurance company. If you also need to apply for business insurance, property insurance and employer liability insurance at the same time, they can al provide you with a joint insurance, which will be very competitive.
Anyway, you can make the final decision by yourself for which company that you will chose.
