Employer Liability Insurance
The vast majority of UK businesses employ staff. This means they must have employer’s liability insurance in place to cover the cost of legal fees and, if required, compensation, should an employee sustain an injury or contract an illness while working on behalf of a company. Our business insurance brokers can talk you through the many different products we have available, and we can also discuss public liability policies.
R T Waters Ltd has helped clients in the local area to find suitable business insurance for over 60 years, and we look forward to helping you find the perfect policy too.
Contractors Liability Insurance
Any claim of liability made against you, be it from an employee, a subcontractor, a client or a member of the public, could threaten the very existence of your business. If you trade as a self-employed contractor or play an important role in any business where you have to make key decisions personally, it is vitally important to protect yourself with a level of cover that ties in with your needs and requirements.
Our commercial insurance brokers are here to help contractors in Guildford and all surrounding Surrey areas. We guide you with advice on limits of cover and can arrange an employer or public liability policy tailored to your business.
Office and Shopkeepers Insurance
Whether you work as a one-man operation from home, run a small retail outlet or own a global plc, our business insurance brokers can arrange insurance and advise on a commercial policy that ties in perfectly with how you trade. This type of insurance doesn’t have to be expensive, but it will still provide sufficient cover for you, your assets, your employees and your premises, irrespective of whether you own or lease.

Like all reputable commercial insurance brokers, we strongly advise that you have professional indemnity insurance in place. If you offer professional advice or services yourself, this cover protects you in the event of somebody claiming against that advice or your services. If you operate at a professional level in Guildford or, indeed, anywhere else on a regional or nationwide basis, we can provide exceptional cover through our insurer network.
Professional indemnity insurance inspires confidence amongst your own clients and generates trust in your business.

As a business owner, it is usually a matter of course to cover tangible assets, such as laptops, or tablet computers, but what would you do if your network suffered a security breach? This could result in stolen data, leading to an immediate financial impact on your business as well as damaging your company’s reputation.
A cyber insurance policy not only provides you with financial protection against fines and penalties, but it also includes legal advice, IT forensics and expert support. These experts can even rebuild your IT network should the worst ever happen.
We have access to “off-the-shelf” cyber packages which cover basic requirements for smaller businesses. For those larger bespoke risks, we have access to our London Market providers who will shape a policy unique to you and your business requirements.
Cover available includes:
