What Is a General Liability Certificate and Why Do I Need It?

A certificate of insurance (also known as a COI) provides proof that you and your business have coverage. A COI can show proof of general liability insurance or any other type of insurance policy your business carries. Depending on the insurance provider you select, your COI might be automatically delivered to you. Otherwise, you may need to request your COI from your policyholder.

The general liability certificate can be an important document because it can be used to show potential customers, employees, and government officials that you’re protected. For example, if a customer is on the fence about hiring you for a big project, a COI can provide that extra push to show you’re committed to performing the work in a safe and effective manner.
