Provided by Professional Risks


We will calculate the risk and provide the most crucial pieces of cover you can invest in.

Accountancy firms of all shape and sizes play a crucial role in the wider economy but the nature of the advice these professionals provide brings significant risk exposures.

That’s why Professional Indemnity (PI) is a crucial piece of protection that all accountants should consider, be they a small- to medium-sized (SME) firm or a multinational.

At Tokio Marine HCC, we specialise in the SME sector and the risks they face. Whilst PI insurance may not always be a legal requirement, it is one of the most crucial pieces of cover an accountancy firm can invest in. 

Certain governing bodies, such as the Institute of Chartered Accountants of England and Wales (ICAEW), issue ‘practising certificates’, which are required in order for a firm to practice, and these certificates require a firm to have PI insurance.

While non-chartered firms are not generally required to maintain PI cover, we would ask: Why take the risk?
