About 50% of all businesses are home-based. There are many reasons for their popularity, but when you are considering starting your own business, it takes less cash outlay if you don’t have to rent a building for your business.

Home insurance includes liability coverage and it will protect you from an injury that happens to one of your guests or to someone a member of your family injures. If you are using your home for business and customers or clients are visiting you there, they will not be covered by your home insurance liability coverage. You need to have specific commercial liability in order to protect yourself and your assets.
Home insurance protects your home from a variety of hazards. In the event that something happens to your home, your business could be seriously damaged. Home insurance is going to have very little coverage for your business machinery, office equipment, and other things that you need to do business. You need these things to do business, it is important that you make sure you have the coverage you need.
If you are using your personal auto for business purposes, you need to have commercial auto insurance. A personal auto policy will not cover any damage that is incurred while you are using your vehicle for business purposes. It isn’t worth the risk not to have it.
