Purple check mark

Workers' compensation insurance

Arizona state law [PDF] requires all businesses that regularly have at least one employee, full-time or part-time, to carry workers’ compensation insurance. Some coverage exceptions include independent contractors, casual or occasional workers, and domestic workers who are only employed in a home.

Purple check mark

Commercial auto insurance

All business-owned vehicles in Arizona must be covered by commercial auto insurance. Arizona's minimum requirements for auto insurance are:

  • $25,000 bodily injury liability per person
  • $50,000 bodily injury liability per accident
  • $15,000 property damage liability per accident

Trucking companies may need additional coverage to comply with regulations.

Though it's not required, personal vehicles driven for work purposes should be covered by hired and non-owned auto insurance (HNOA), as personal auto policies usually exclude business use. It can be added to general liability insurance or a business owner's policy (BOP).

FAQs about Arizona business insurance

Review answers to frequently asked questions about Arizona insurance.

How do I get a certificate of insurance for my business?

Insureon's licensed agents can help you find business liability insurance that fulfills Arizona's requirements and protects against financial loss. Once you've purchased insurance with us, you can download a certificate of insurance by logging into your account.

Can my company be held liable for a data security breach?

Yes – that's why cyber insurance is so crucial. Hackers are three times more likely to target small businesses, as they often have fewer resources to combat a threat.

Arizona's data breach laws require businesses, from Phoenix to Flagstaff, to report security breaches to affected residents, and the costs can escalate quickly. Cyber liability insurance lessens the financial impact by paying for notification costs, legal fees, and fines.

Does my industry affect state insurance requirements?

Yes, your state may have special requirements for business insurance coverage and bonds for your industry. You may also need a license depending on the work you do.

Contractors often need to carry general liability insurance or surety bonds to perform certain types of work. Having the right insurance and bonds helps you comply with state licensing requirements.

Professionals who offer advice or services, such as real estate agents and brokers, sometimes need professional liability insurance to get licensed in their state.

Cannabis businesses in Arizona are not required to carry cannabis business insurance in order to operate legally. However, coverage is strongly recommended to keep your business protected.

Note that cities and counties may have their own laws, in addition to state laws.
