As a Franchisor, the insurance requirements for both your business and your franchisees businesses can be complex.

Have you considered questions such as?

  • Should I be providing insurance on behalf of my Franchisees?
  • If so, what group insurance shall I purchase and are these meeting legal requirements?
  • If no group insurance, what types of insurance should I be telling my Franchisees to purchase?
  • How do I know my Franchisees insurance policy is correct?
  • Am I liable for the actions of my Franchisee if they fail to insure?
  • What happens if I receive a claim on behalf of a Franchisee?
  • Am I covered for providing advice to my Franchisees?
  • Am I covered for sharing data with my Franchisees?

The insurance requirements for any franchise can vary significantly and at Sioma, we will take the time to understand your business, advise on the right insurance model, administer and manage your insurance policies and claims.
