What is Key Man Insurance?
It is much the same as a mortgage protection policy or a normal term life cover taken out to cover a loan on a mortgage. The main difference is the beneficiary which in the case of this insurance, instead of being the wife or husband its the company. The policy is taken out to protect your business against the financial repercussions of losing a valuable employee due to critical illness, ill health or death. Many large businesses will already have these protection policies in place. But small to medium size companies tend to overlook this insurance or do not even know it exists. Businesses don’t think twice to insure their important equipment. But for some reason do not think to insure the most important part of their company, “the employees” until of course its too late. As well as insuring the key people it is also worth looking at shareholder protection insurance to enable the remaining shareholders to purchase back the shares in the event of another shareholders death.
The damaging effect of losing an important employee could go well beyond just the cost of a replacement. They could be the sole reason your company is doing so well. This insurance can give your company a financial payout should they die or become critical ill.
A relevant life policy is much the same as a death in service apart from you are not restricted to the amount of benefit such as 4 times annual income. The lump sum amount can be much higher and up to 8 times salary. The main reason for choosing a relevant life policy is of course the tax benefits. Companies are able to pay the premiums from their accounts and claim these as a cost for tax purpose. Of course the employee will benefit from not having to pay the premiums from their taxed income. This can give huge savings even if the actual premium is more expensive than any existing cover. Directors who own their own company can of course take advantage of these polices and many are now changing from their current policy to a relevant life. Speak to your accountant for further advice on how you can make savings on relevant life insurance or of course give us a call and speak to a qualified advisor.
