Do you need plumber’s insurance?

If you are a self-employed plumber, it is recommended that you are covered by some form of plumber’s liability insurance. One such insurance is public liability insurance, which will cover you in the case of damage to a customer’s property.

Whilst the standard of your work may be of the highest standard, accidents do happen. For instance, a common claim against plumbers includes water damage to a customer’s property. A customer can claim compensation from you if you have carried out work in their property which has led to this kind of damage. Associated costs and expenses, as well as the cost of the damage can also be included, in the claim against you.

Without the right cover, you could encounter serious financial difficulties for you and your business. However, with public liability cover as part of your insurance for plumbers, you will have help towards the cost of any compensation and legal costs which arises as a result of a claim made by a customer.

Other Plumbers Insurance Considerations


Can you afford to replace your tools if they are lost or stolen?

Plumbers, like other contractors, have a range of tools that they require in order to carry out their jobs.  These tools can be expensive to replace if they are lost, damaged or stolen, so it pays to include ‘tool insurance’ in your list of plumber’s insurance.


Are you protected against the taxman?

HMRC are better placed than ever to investigate or make enquiries into tax returns, especially those of tradesmen.  There does not need to be any wrong doing in order for them to open an enquiry, so it is wise for plumbers to have a tax enquiry insurance policy in place.  This will cover accountants’ fees, and where required, Rhino are able to arrange for specialist representation.
