What Is Professional Liability Insurance Coverage?

Professional liability insurance protects businesses when employees make mistakes in the professional services they’ve provided to customers or clients. This coverage is also known as errors and omissions insurance (E&O). Even if you’re an expert in your business, mistakes happen. And if your client or customer thinks a mistake in your professional services caused a financial loss, they can sue you.

What Is Accountants Professional Liability Insurance?

accountants professional liability insuranceAs an accountant or tax professional, you provide financial advice to your clients. However, with this responsibility comes the risk of financial loss. That’s why accountants’ professional liability insurance is crucial for your business’ risk management plan. This insurance coverage is also known as errors and omissions insurance and can help cover claims of:
  • Negligence
  • Misrepresentation
  • Inaccurate advice

Why Should a CPA Get Professional Indemnity Insurance for Accountants?

CPA firms provide financial services to clients all the time, which means they’re especially vulnerable to errors or omissions claims. If you’re wondering the difference between an error and an omission, we can explain. If your employee makes an auditing mistake, this is an error. If you don’t finish a service that was promised in the engagement letter for a client on time, this is an omission.
In either situation, professional liability insurance protects your company from certain risks. It’s similar to malpractice insurance for medical professionals in that it can help pay your legal costs if your client sues your accounting business for a mistake.

Accountant Professional Liability Insurance Coverage

  • You overlooked a large expense while putting together your client’s financial statement.
  • They believe their financial loss on their tax returns was due to your tax preparer making a bookkeeping mistake.
  • You overestimated your client’s budget and gave them inaccurate financial recommendations.
It’s important to pay attention to the retroactive date in your accountants professional liability insurance policy. This means your insurance only covers claims for incidents that occurred on or after this date. So, a policy with an earlier retroactive date can offer more protection for your accounting business.
