How Business Insurance Costs Are Calculated

Many people ask what the median cost of business insurance is, but it really depends on what kind of business you have. For example, higher risk companies can expect to pay more for insurance. That’s why looking at this average isn’t always helpful for small business owners that want an estimate of their own costs. Instead, focus on the average costs in your specific industry.
In many cases, it’s more realistic to plan your insurance costs based on your:
  • Industry type: Your industry may impact the cost for business insurance because of the risk factors associated with the work you do.
  • Business operations’ size: If your business has expanded its operations and increased in overall size, you’ll most likely need to get additional coverage.
  • Number of employees: If you have more employees, you’ll need more coverages to keep them protected from risks like customer lawsuits and accidents, injuries or illnesses they might experience on the job.
  • Coverage needs: Each business has different coverage needs because each business is unique. Some companies may be legally required to carry certain coverages depending on what you do and where you’re located.
  • Industry risk: Typically, riskier businesses pay more for insurance. Risk factors can include financial and physical risks to your business, employees, vendors and customers. Más información sobre business insurance by industry  hoy mismo.
  • Business location: Companies located in heavily populated areas often experience a higher likelihood of crime or vandalism, which can cause your rates to go up. State business insurance requirements also vary, which can impact your commercial property insurance cost.
  • Public visibility: People may target well-known businesses in the public eye more often than lesser known companies. For this reason, insurance rates may increase as you gain more of a reputation.
  • Payroll size: Your payroll helps determine your workers’ compensation benefits. The larger your payroll, the higher your premium will be because there’s a higher risk for bodily injuries.
  • Coverage levels: The more coverage you add to your policy and the higher the limits, the more you’ll pay. Sometimes, choosing a higher deductible can help lower your monthly or annual premiums.

How To Save on Business Insurance

We know how important it is to protect the business that you’ve worked so hard to build. Without the protection of business insurance, your business would have to pay out of pocket for costly claims. If you’re ready to get business insurance, be sure to consider these ways to save money while getting the coverages you need:
  • Bundle your policies: You can save money on business insurance by bundling essential coverage into one policy. For instance, a Business Owner’s Policy (BOP) combines business income, commercial property and general liability insurance into one convenient policy.
  • Pay your premium up front: It’s always an option to pay your premium monthly, but if you pay the entire cost upfront each year, you could get a discount on your business insurance costs.
  • Raise your deductible: Your deductible is the amount you’ll pay out of pocket before your insurance company will cover a claim. By increasing your deductible, you may be able to lower your total insurance costs per month.
