Cover for your Liabilities

This covers your liabilities to your employees which is a compulsory level of cover, and to the public for either just your actions or for your actions and products. There are 4 boxes. The first is for the wage roll in the second for the number of people employed in this category.  The third is for the % work away and the 4th is a free form box to describe their duties We ask for a split in the wage roll because some activities attract higher rates than others. The more we know about how you operate the more likely we are to arrive at an acceptable premium.

What is your management and clerical wage roll, the number of people that you employ in this section and the % of their time that they work away from your premisies. 

This should include all those in sedentry occupations including sales people. If one person work in two categories, use a % for each
