Do I need to complete a proposal form for Public Liability?

In many cases, all the information needed for a simple Public Liability quotation can be obtained over the phone.  The insurance broker would then send out a pre-populated proposal form (after binding cover), based on the answers given, which just requires a signature.  

Some higher risk occupations do require a proposal form to be completed prior to obtaining a quote.  Occupations such as solicitors and chemical manufacturers would fall into this category.

Westralian Insurance can assist with your business insurance questions.  Call us today on (08) 9302 1388 or visit www.westralianinsurance.com.au

Do I have to cover sub-contractors for Workers Compensation?

In many cases, subcontractors have to be covered for Workers Compensation in exactly the same way as direct employees.  Although some subcontractors may be large businesses with all of their own insurance policies in place, some contractors may be sole traders who are ineligible for Workers Compensation. These types of subcontractors would have to be included on your Workers Compensation policy every year.

If you have Workers Compensation queries or would like a quote for your small business, call the team at Westralian Insurance today on (08) 9302 1388, or visit www.westralianinsurance.com.au

Business insurance for tour operators?

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 www.westralianinsurance.com.au
