The most common types of small business insurance in North Carolina
Workers’ comp protects your business in case an employee ever gets an illness or injury because of their job. It’ll pay for medical and rehabilitation expenses and wage loss (so you don’t have to).
If another business or person ever tries to sue your business for bodily injury or damage to property, general liability insurance can help cover your financial settlement and legal expenses.
Business property insurance can pay for damage to your building (as long as it’s damage resulting from a covered reason), while business personal property insurance pays out to repair or replace the things inside your building.
Business interruption insurance helps your business stay afloat if you’re ever forced to close temporarily for a covered reason. It’ll take care of ongoing expenses like taxes and payroll—or even the cost of a temporary location, if necessary—while you get back on your feet.
How much do North Carolinians pay for small business insurance?
In North Carolina, the median yearly cost that Huckleberry customers pay for workers’ comp is $951. The median cost for a BOP is $750 — while for general liability insurance, it’s $835.
If you’re wondering how much you might pay, though, you’ll have to look at factors specific to your small business. Costs vary depending on which industry your business falls under, where you are in North Carolina, and how many employees you have. So, your premium could be higher—or a lot lower—than the median prices. (For example, Huckleberry customers have paid as little as $267 for their workers’ comp policy.)
