Claims made basis of cover rather than claims occurring basis.

It is important to understand that Professional Indemnity policies are written on what is called a ‘claims made’ basis.

Policies on a claims made basis should include a retroactive date to protect the policyholder against claims in respect of work undertaken prior to the current policy year.

It is possible to arrange a policy with retroactive date of none, which effectively provides cover in respect of all previous periods.
