Fast Facts About Small Businesses in Arkansas
How much do you know about small businesses in Arkansas? Were you aware that small businesses make up almost half the businesses in Arkansas? Here are some quick facts that might surprise you!
According to the 2019 Small Business Profile from the US Small Business Administration Office of Advocacy:
Do I Even Need Business Insurance in Arkansas?
Different states have different insurance requirements for businesses. So, you might be wondering what insurance you’re required to purchase as a small business owner in Arkansas.
Most small businesses in Arkansas with three or more employees (including the owner) are required to hold worker’s compensation insurance. Some exceptions require worker’s compensation insurance for less than three employees, however, so it’s important to check your particular industry’s requirements. Worker’s compensation must be paid by the employer, and no part is allowed to be covered by employees. Without worker’s compensation, your business may face state penalties and lose protections.
Any company-owned vehicles are required to have commercial auto insurance. The minimums are $25,000 for property damage liability per accident, $25, 000 bodily injury liability per person, and $50,000 bodily injury liability per accident. It’s also recommended that you purchase commercial auto insurance if employees are driving personal vehicles for business use, as personal auto insurance often does not cover business use of a personal vehicle.
How Much Will Small Business Insurance Cost Me in Arkansas?
Asking how much small business insurance costs in Arkansas is like asking what size shoes women wear. The answer is going to vary because every business is different. From services or products offered, to daily work hours, to the number of employees. Various factors go into the price of business insurance. A boutique with five employees that opens from 8 am to 8 pm is going to need different insurance than a hotel that employs 60 people, has an attached bar and restaurant, and is open 24/7.
But the good news is that business insurance doesn’t have to break the bank. There are many affordable options and G&G Independent Insurance is here to help you design a small business insurance plan that fits your company like a glove. Get the coverage you need to protect your business without getting stuck with unnecessary extras.

Commercial property insurance is the first line of protection against losses due to fires, vandalism, theft, and more. Learn more about obtaining commercial property insurance here!
Commercial Auto Insurance
As mentioned above, it is required in Arkansas to have commercial auto insurance coverage for any vehicles owned by your company. Most commercial auto insurance coverage is similar to personal auto insurance, but because of the difference in use compared to a personal vehicle, it’s assessed differently. It’s important to be aware that if you use your personal vehicle for business purposes, you may not be covered under your personal auto insurance for any accidents that occur while driving for your business. Commercial auto insurance often includes the option for you to add protection for employees driving personal vehicles for business use.

Commercial Umbrella Insurance
It’s tempting to think that once you’re insured, you’re in the clear. But sometimes your losses are greater than the coverage of your commercial insurance plan. This can result in devastating consequences for a business, especially small businesses that can’t afford to fight large lawsuits or cover other unexpected expenses. Commercial umbrella insurance is a catch-all to protect you where your regular coverage might meet its limit. Contact G&G Insurance today to find out if your small business could benefit from commercial umbrella insurance in Arkansas.
