State of the Nation Report- Uncovering the risks to small and medium size businesses
The report gathers insights from small and medium size businesses about the potential risks they may face, their awareness of risks, and how they as a business could mitigate them.
We spoke to a range of businesses throughout the UK — from limited companies and sole traders, to partnerships and limited liability partnerships.

In our 7th edition of State of the Nation, we find that while much has changed over the years, especially most recently, there is still a serious protection gap for SMEs.

Key findings:
  • 75% of businesses have some form of business dept
  • 59%  would cease trading within 12 months of losing a key person
  • 73% of businesses had taken out Business Protection following advice
Our claims statistics are more than just numbers.
In 2020, we paid out over 15,855 claims to support your clients and their families. But they’re more than just numbers to us, they represent real people that we’ve helped in their time of need.
 
As well as our customers, we also recognise the importance of the people that make it happen – our advisers and claims teams.  To find out more about the people behind the numbers, download our claims magazine here.

How to Register

If you are setting up agencies for the first time with providers

Please complete an origo application. All agencies will be required to complete an on-boarding process including financial checks, FCA checks, validation checks etc. and they will require signed personal director guarantees. Please note that a commission withhold facility will be put into place when a DA firms unearned indemnity commission (UIC) amount reaches £75k. This is to help build up a cash reserve to help offset any potential debts if the firm suddenly ceased trading. More information can be provided on how this scheme works.

If you are an adviser to a firm that already has agencies

You can contact L&G's registrations team via [email protected] or call their team on 0370 0500 274 option 2, you will need to have their agency number to hand. An adviser can also register for OLPC access online by clicking here. This usually requires a directors email address being entered to approve the OLPC request (security check to confirm the person works for the firm)

If you have applied for an agency and need to be setup on a provider’s online system

Full instructions and links sent via email with the agency confirmation.
