Adviser Verdict

David Wilson, managing director of Tyne and Wear-based NE Money, said: “With business protection you are looking at the price, but also at the quality of the cover.

“A lot of the benefits which some products offer such as free legal advice, are not as attractive to employers because you can get them through other sources such as a chamber of commerce.”
