Any vehicle that uses the roads in Australia must be registered and insured with Comprehensive Third Party or CTP insurance to cover personal injury or any injury to another party arising out from a road accident.

In most states in Australia, your business will need public liability insurance before you will be granted your plumbing licence. Even if you are subcontracting to a builder, another plumbing company or sole trader plumber you might still be held responsible should someone make a claim.

Without tools and equipment, you can’t work, and if yours are damaged or stolen, you bear the cost of replacing or repairing them, so tool insurance is a must for any plumber.

As a sole trader, you can’t take paid sick leave so taking out this insurance policy is a wise move to protect your income.

In NSW, sole traders with a plumbing business must hold this insurance to protect themselves in case of injury or disability. If your business employs staff, you must have this insurance cover in case workers are injured.
