How To Reduce Business Insurance Premiums Without Cutting Corners

When you’re running a business, you’re always interested in finding new ways to bring down your expenses. Whether this means the cost of your office supplies or your liability insurance, reducing your expenses can help you grow your business and make it more profitable.

What Is An Insurance Premium?

A premium refers to the amount of money you pay for insurance coverage. You can pay for your insurance either every month or every year.

Review Your Coverage

The first thing you need to do is review your current insurance plan and make sure you don’t have more insurance than you need. You might still be paying for employees who have left the company or equipment you don’t have anymore. 

Check your commercial auto, equipment, and property policy and see if you still own and use everything that’s listed. If not, then you need to contact your insurance company to adjust your policy accordingly. 

Next, you’ll want to check your company’s payroll to make sure you’re not still paying insurance for employees that no longer work for you. 

You should perform the review we discussed in the previous section every year. Many small business owners are so busy because they have to wear multiple hats and they often don’t allocate enough time to this important task. 

Reassess Your Insurance Needs Annually

Because your business is constantly changing – and so are your risks. We already mentioned that not doing this review can result in paying to insure equipment you no longer use or employees that have left your company.
