Will my homeowners' insurance cover my home-based business?

More than likely your homeowners' insurance will not cover your home-based business. In fact, operating a business out of your home may negatively impact some of your other homeowners' coverage. If you check your homeowners' policy, you may find that your small business is either underinsured or even uninsured. In most cases you will find that the coverage of business equipment such as computers, fax machines, copiers, and printers is limited to less than the cost of a new computer alone. Also, your homeowners' liability insurance coverage probably won't cover any injuries that may occur to the employees or clients that you have on your premises. Check with your insurance carrier to determine your exact coverage.
