In the event your business premises were badly damaged or destroyed by an occurrence such as fire, you would want to get everything reinstated and begin trading again as soon as possible. But where do you start? The first few hours after a fire are vital if the business is to survive, but the loss adjuster could take a few days to visit. Likewise, over-zealous interpretation of policy conditions could also cause delays or worse. This policy provides you with a loss adjuster within 24 hours, providing you with an expert on-site, assisting in getting recovery under way.


Credit insurance is vital protection in the current financial climate that helps to protect you against the high risk of bad debt. With credit insurance, your business will be safe in the knowledge that if your customers don't pay, you will be protected. What does the policy cover? The policy will insure your invoices for goods and services supplied to business customers located in the following countries: United Kingdom (including Channel Islands and Isle of Man), Austria, Belgium, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United States on credit terms no longer than 90 days after the date of invoice where the total debt is 200 or more.


The complexity of employment law and safety legislation places a huge burden on SMEs, and in the face of ever increasing compensatory awards, employers now rate managing these risks as one of the biggest challenges facing their business. Through Johnstone Business Guard, we provide practical guidance and support to employers on Employment Law and Health & Safety issues. Available 24 hours a day, this on-line service is primarily aimed at small and medium-sized businesses, to help meet your legal obligations under employment law and health and safety legislation.


Cyber liability doesn't just affect the IT sector, it can affect any company. This policy explains what it is, sees where you may be vulnerable and puts defence into place. In our increasingly litigious society, good legal advice can be very expensive, and every company could benefit from this cover. How would you manage without your driving licence? Could you afford a chauffeur? If you were insured with this policy, you could afford your own driver! Under the terms of this policy, you will benefit from a replacement vehicle in the event of an accident, whether the fault is yours or not.


While insurance is a vitally important element for any business and at the heart of what we do, it is only one of many important concerns facing companies today. We believe it is our duty to help our clients in any way that we can, by adding value or introducing expertise, and have put together a range of specialist business services, designed to provide additional protection and help your business run more efficiently. They include such areas as Claims Loss Recovery, Commercial Finance, Health & Safety and Employment Law and Independent Financial Advice.

Operated by Tom and Paul Thompson, Acorn has a reputation for providing finance to a wide range of businesses over a 20-year period.
