Business insurance for carpenters?  

A carpenter’s primary must-have policy is public liability, covering third party personal injury or damage to property during the course of their work.  They should also consider insuring their tools of trade anywhere in Australia.  A good tools policy will include theft from the open air and theft from unattended motor vehicles, which is a common occurrence in the construction industry. 

Workers Compensation insurance must also be taken out for any carpenters with employees.  Carpenters should also include any sole trader subcontractors who work for them under their Workers Compensation policy, as sole traders are not able to obtain Workers Compensation for themselves.

If you're a carpenter, or a tradie of any kind, Westralian Insurance can help with your insurance needs, and answer any questions you may have.  Call the friendly professionals today on (08) 9302 1388, or visit

Do I need insurance for my online business?

Online businesses require Public Liability insurance, just like physical retail and wholesale businesses.  Claims for third party property damage and personal injury can still be sustained by an online business.  Public Liability can also include Products Liability which is vital for any retail business, whether they sell from a store or online.  This covers third party property damage or personal injury caused by products.  As long as the insurer is aware that the business is an online one, then Products Liability cover can be provided for any goods sold via the internet.

What are my small business insurance requirements?   

Small businesses with employees are required by law to take out Workers Compensation Insurance to cover those employees.  It is also highly advisable to insure all of the business assets such as stock, contents, glass, buildings etc. against accidental damage, storm and theft as a minimum.  Public Liability is also very important in order to cover any claims for third party property damage or personal injury.
