CA PI Insurance
Professional Indemnity (PI) insurance is the safety net that protects you if your practice’s risk management strategies fail.
If a client or third party is unhappy with your advice, they may hold you, their Chartered Accountant, legally responsible and make a claim for economic loss. Chartered Accountants can also be found liable for breach of contract, negligence, or breach of statute, such as misleading and deceptive conduct in consumer protection laws.
PI Insurance will assist with protecting you personally, your employees and your business against claims.
Need for CA PI
Professional indemnity policies for chartered accountants basically cover the legal liability, which the insured could incur by way of losses to clients arising due to acts of omissions or errors on the part of the insured, or his paid employees, named in the proposal. Such acts committed should be while rendering professional services.
However, delays caused by the insured himself, like loss suffered by a client due to delay in filing of his return by the chartered accountant, are specifically excluded from the scope of the professional indemnity insurance.
