Accident Insurance and ACC
Accident insurance in New Zealand is provided by ACC as every business owner or self-employed person knows when they pay their ACC Cover Plus levies! BUT not everyone knows that there is another option. It’s called ACC Cover Plus Extra and it gives you much more flexibility and often, lower compliance costs. Once of the things business owners face is proving their income to ACC when they want to make a claim. With ACC Cover Plus Extra for example – you can set an agreed amount. You do have to apply for it – so talk to us and we can make it happen.
Understanding accident insurance
All business owners and the self-employed are automatically put on ACC Cover Plus but it may not be the best cover for you. The alternative, ACC Cover Plus Extra can cover you for accidents and let link illness cover to it. ACC Cover Plus Extra can pay you out even when your staff continue to earn (with Cover Plus you have to prove loss of earnings). With Cover Plus you can only get 80% of your income based on your last tax return. With Cover Plus Extra – you are paid an agreed value. That way you know exactly where you stand.
