Business Insurance (For-Profit and Nonprofit)
Whether for-profit or nonprofit, organizations should have certain kinds of insurance. Liability insurance is highly recommended for property and automobiles. Worker's Compensation Insurance is state-required when you have employees. Part of the decision about what insurance to buy depends on the nature of the business. For example, if it has a lot of assets, it might consider theft and property damage insurance. You may want life insurance on you and other critical personnel in your organization. You also may want to consider various other forms of insurance, for example, Directors and Officers (if you have a Board of Directors) or business interruption.
