Professional indemnity insurance

Professional Indemnity Insurance (PII) is required by all self-employed members. Employees should be covered by their firm.

The Professional Indemnity Insurance Regulations govern this requirement and members should familarise themselves with these.

A check on members' PII policies may be undertaken by the Association.

**The PII regulations and guidance are in the process of being reviewed but in the meantime the definition of member in practice has been updated see note available here. This definition will be applied from 1st April 2021 and if members have any queries regarding the requirements for PII following this change they should email the Professional Standards team standards [at]**

Members should be aware that the ATT cannot recommend that members take out a particular PII scheme. However, the ATT has an arrangement with the following providers that, by virtue of their membership, any member will be provided with a quote for PII cover which is fully compliant with ATT's minimum terms and conditions.

TaxPro cover provided by Hiscox via Arthur J Gallagher Insurance Brokers  who act as the brokers for them:

If a member’s fee income is less than £5000, a low cost PII policy (£5 per month) is available. TaxPro also provides protection for work done on a pro bono basis.
