SME Business Insurance Packages

As a small business owner insurance probably isn’t the first thing on your mind. Perhaps you think it's not necessary, or you don’t know where to start. Or you simply can’t afford it at this point of your business.

So, if you have just started a small business and you’re not sure of your SME insurance requirements, you’ve come to the right place. We have put together a checklist of information below that will help guide you through what you need for your small business insurance plans, both to safeguard your business as it grows and help you attract and retain existing talent by designing employee benefits health solutions to suit your needs. If this sounds like what you are after, give us a call today and we can get you started.

Small businesses, otherwise known as SMEs, are integral to economies. Protecting SMEs is crucial to avoid any hampering of operations, growth and success - both individually and for the economy as a whole.

It’s estimated that almost one in 10 smaller SMEs do not hold any business insurance at all. These start-ups are a vital part of the economy here in Singapore, so having business protection insurance helps to safeguard both you and the economy. Meanwhile, more than half of all Singaporean SMEs operate with only the most basic and mandated levels of business insurance. Whilst SMEs expect difficult times as they grow, many do not hold any business protection insurance coverage for the specific risks and issues that could affect their businesses. Give our team a call and we can assess your protection needs.
