Accountants Professional Indemnity

Accountants Professional Indemnity

When providing professional advice, accountants have a duty of care for the advice and assistance they provide to their clients. Delta’s Accountants Professional Indemnity Policy is designed to meet the requirements of professional associations and protect insured individuals, their reputation, and their business against the financial burden of legal actions arising from alleged negligence or breach of duty based on a professional error, act, or omission brought against them.


Accountants' Professional Indemnity Insurance is specialised cover designed to protect accounting professionals and their firms from financial losses due to claims of negligence, errors, omissions, or misconduct in their professional services. Given the complex nature of accounting services and the potential for disputes, having Professional Indemnity Insurance provides peace of mind and financial security for accounting professionals and their businesses.
