Business owner’s policy (BOP)

A business owner’s policy bundles general liability insurance with commercial property insurance. Many insurers offer tech professionals a discount if they choose this policy.

When is a business owner's policy important for a tech company?

A business owner’s policy protects your technology business against common liability risks with general liability insurance. Plus, it includes commercial property insurance to protect your business property.

Your landlord or clients might require the general liability coverage that's included in a BOP, while property insurance is vital for companies that own a building or expensive equipment.

What does a BOP do?

A business owner's policy can help cover the cost of:

  • Damaged business property, such as laptops
  • Accidental client injuries
  • Damaged customer property
  • Copyright infringement lawsuits and other advertising injuries

Because a BOP combines two key policies at a discount, TechInsurance's licensed agents often recommend them for tech business owners.

What if my business needs more coverage?

If your tech business has higher than average liabilities, you can increase your policy limit with commercial umbrella insurance. Umbrella insurance raises your maximum coverage limit, so your insurance company will pay for costlier insurance claims.

A business owner's policy doesn't cover every type of commercial liability. Get more complete coverage by bundling your BOP with these insurance policies:

You can add some types of coverage to a business owner's policy as endorsements, depending on your insurance company. Talk to a TechInsurance agent to discuss tailoring a BOP to match your business.
