Business protection is about providing financial support if a director, partner or key employee dies or becomes seriously ill.
Providing financial support at a time when it is vital for the business to recover quickly and minimise the impact on profits is crucial for business continuity. In simple terms there are four main business protection insurances you can buy that will safeguard your business:
1. Shareholder / partnership insurance
2. Key person insurance
3. Relevant life policies
4. Loan repayment insurance
Directors pensions remain one of the most tax-efficient ways for business owners and directors to accumulate wealth for retirement.
You receive tax relief at your highest marginal rate on all personal contributions and your company contributions do not attract income tax or national insurance, unlike other benefits. Further, the company contributions are treated as a business expense and so offset against profits when calculating the company's liability to corporation tax.
Good employers understand the need to support their employees by providing a range of workplace benefits that provide them and their families with a sense of financial security. A visible, valuable benefits package also helps attract and retain talent for your business.
To achieve a return on your investment for providing workplace benefits, you need to be sure your employees understand the true value to them. Our approach will help you achieve that objective.

It's not the first thing you might think about, but when a key member of a company becomes ill dies, the business needs help and financial support. It is vital at a time like this that there is an adequate level of business protection in place, so that funds become available to minimise the negative impact of the loss. In addition, when a key person is no longer available, the company needs a replacement. It can take time and money to identify and recruit a suitable individual to take their place.
