An Introduction to Legal Expenses cover for our scheme members

The Legal Expenses package we have put together with Abbey Legal includes a number of elements that Yoga Teachers, Therapists and other instructors will value.  

The cost

The cost depended upon how the cover would be sold.  

We agreed a formula with Abbey Legal whereby we would offer the extra cover to everyone on the understanding that if it isn’t required, it can be set aside. On this basis the standard cost is currently £15.60 inclusive of insurance premium tax @ 6% but discounts are available to groups who select mandatory cover, dependent upon their numbers.  

The cost is reviewed annually.  

The cover

  2. Criminal Prosecutions – including allegations of abuse or misconduct (providing you plead not guilty throughout the case)
  3. Taxation – indemnifying accountancy costs in the event of an HMRC investigation
