How Much Does Business Insurance Cost? 

Good question! There's no one-size-fits-all answer because every IT business is different and business insurance costs depend on a number of factors, such as…

  • Where your business is located. 
  • How many employees you have. 
  • The business risks you face. 
  • The types of policies you choose to buy. 
  • The coverage limits you select. 

But we get it – you want to have a ballpark figure to help you anticipate the potential costs. That's why we put together some sample business insurance policy quotes and cost averages. Just select a business size to get an estimate of what your business might pay for business insurance.

Keep in mind these are examples only. Your actual insurance costs may vary depending on your business's structure and location.
