Business insurance for LLCs

Once you’ve registered as a limited liability company (LLC), your personal assets are protected against the risks of running a business. The next step is to make sure you have the right insurance coverage for your company.

Recommended policies for LLCs

LLCs need insurance policies that match their state requirements and type of business. These property and liability coverages protect against common risks.

Bundle insurance policies to save money

LLC owners can save money on business insurance coverage with two packages common in the IT industry.

A business owner's policy (BOP) combines commercial property insurance with a general liability policy.

A general liability insurance policy is the coverage that most small business owners purchase first. It covers basic third-party (non-employee) liability claims, including bodily injury and property damage. The policy is especially beneficial for LLCs that invite the public into an office or storefront, handle delicate client equipment, or have an active social media presence.

Commercial property insurance is critical for protecting your work equipment and your building, if you own it. This policy is valuable even if you’re renting an office space, as your landlord’s policy won’t cover your company’s belongings.

Technology errors and omissions insurance (tech E&O) combines errors and omissions insurance and cyber liability insurance.

Technology E&O insurance is crucial for LLCs in the tech industry and professional services, as it covers the cost of lawsuits over the quality of your work, including any security recommendations. It bundles errors and omissions insurance with both forms of cyber liability insurance:

First-party cyber liability insurance helps your tech company recover from a data breach or cyberattack. It covers expenses like the cost of credit monitoring services, crisis management, and cybersecurity incident investigations.

Thirty-party cyber liability insurance protects tech companies if a client sues you for failing to prevent a data breach or cyberattack at their business. If you find yourself in this kind of dispute, this covers your attorney's fees, settlement, court-ordered judgments, and other legal costs.

What are the advantages of an LLC?

Before you even start your company, one of the first questions you might have is how to structure your business. It's critical to know the difference between a sole proprietorship and an LLC.

A sole proprietor is someone who owns a business and is personally responsible for its profits, debts, and liabilities. With a sole proprietorship, your company:

  • Does not need to register with your state
  • Is responsible for lawsuits or business obligations
  • Is not separated from your personal assets, meaning creditors can come after your personal belongings if your business assets cannot cover your debts
  • Will disappear if you pass away or you decide to sell the company

LLCs are a more formal corporate structure for your company. With this setup, your IT company:

  • Needs to file for a business classification in your state, which could cost between $50 and $500
  • Has separate assets from your personal assets
  • Could be viewed as less risky to lenders
  • Could accept additional owners of the company
  • Can continue running under an operating agreement if you pass away or separate from the company
