As our firm is not regulated by the SRA we are not required to have professional indemnity insurance that meets the SRA’s minimum terms and conditions. This means that while the SRA requires regulated firms to have a certain level of insurance to protect clients in case something goes wrong, these requirements do not apply to our firm. Secondly, because we are not regulated by the SRA, clients will not be able to make a claim on the SRA Compensation Fund. This fund exists to compensate clients of regulated firms in case of loss due to dishonesty or failure to account for money received. As our firm is not regulated by the SRA, this protection is not available to our clients. However, Canko Consultancy Ltd holds Public Liability, Employer's Liability (upto £10 mil) and Professional Indemnity (upto £5 mil) insurance policy from Simply Business - Chiswell Insurance with Policy Number: CHBS4395859XB valid until March 2025 renewed yearly. If you require further information about the amount and scope of this cover, we would be happy to provide it.
