Some of our Members have been signing up for expensive legal and/or tax advice cover after being contacted by pushy salespeople.

Don’t fall for their sales talk – as an NHF/NBF Member you do not need these expensive contracts or any other extra legal cover. You are already fully covered at no extra cost as part of your membership.

Legal cover contracts offered by other companies can tie you in for up to five years and very often you cannot get out of them after signing up.

We never ask our Members to sign up for any longer than one year at a time.

As a Member you already have FREE comprehensive legal cover as part of your NHF/NBF membership.

 You do NOT need to pay anyone else for legal cover.


Your free legal cover with the NHF/NBF includes:

  • 24/7 employment law advice helpline. 
  • 24/7 commercial helpline to answer queries on commercial law, tax, VAT and payroll. 
  • Up to £50,000 automatic legal expenses insurance cover for employment & tax disputes (T&Cs apply).
  • Restrictive covenant enforcement advice and support. 
  • Employment contracts.
  • Apprentice agreements/deeds (Scotland & N Ireland).
  • Chair and room/area renting agreements.

Find out more about your free legal cover here.

Dealing with pushy salespeople

 If pushy salespeople continue to contact you, ask them to take you off their contact list. If they still contact you, tell them you will report them to the ICO (Information Commissioner’s Office). Unwanted sales calls can be reported online here. 

Don’t get caught out by online adverts

 Don’t believe everything you read online! Adverts about legal cover can be misleading and wrongly associated with well-known and trusted organisations. If you’re tempted to follow the link, always call us first for advice (01234 831965).

You’re covered for health & safety too …

 As an NHF/NBF Member you have access to our free health & safety advice line, plus 20% off specialist salon/barbershop insurance, free allergy alert testing toolkits and discounts on our comprehensive health & safety toolkits.

 You don’t need to buy extra health & safety cover – you’ve already got everything you need to protect your staff, clients and business.
