How can I get a craft insurance . I want to sell craft items and body products that I make. I have been in an IVA and completed in July 2020. I am distressed as three insurance companies have declined my application because I have been in an IVA. I applied as a company ( as I am also a business owner) as well as sole trader but both times declined as in all of the applications , there is the question of IVA. So stressed as I had high hopes for my new business venture was feeling positive , now that the noose that was wrapped around my neck is gone ....so unfair being judged by my past...

Some in the past have had luck with Hiscox. Other than that, are there any trade associations you could join, as some come with or offer insurance ?
My opinions are merely that .. opinions based on experience. Always seek professional advice.

Sounds like you need to find a broker.. Some of them have expertise in very specialised areas.

Thank you for your help on this. I will look into Hiscox. Never looked into trade associations but I will do. Thanx again ☺️
