One important tip for home-based business owners to remember is to make sure their small business coverage is sufficient.

One important tip for home-based business owners to remember is to make sure their small business coverage is sufficient.

A recent Associated Press report cites the growth of home-based small businesses in light of the recession and high unemployment.

The article notes that some entrepreneurs, such as freelancers, may be covered under homeowners policies, but that those with a large business setup may need to consider a separate small business insurance policy. Another point is that those with employees are likely to require more coverage.

Also, the report adds that a small business policy would protect a home-based business from things like loss of equipment due to fire and other disasters, or injuries suffered by clients or other visitors to the property.

Overall, small businesses that fail to invest in a good insurance policy could be putting their long-term security and growth prospects at risk. This is the case whether a business is in its earliest stages or whether it has been expanding and adding employees.
