Business Insurance

Business Interruption

One of the biggest concerns any business owner has is their ability to continue in business after a large loss.

Property, contents and stock damage or loss may prevent you from providing products or services to your customers. They may go elsewhere and never return. Every day you are unable to operate is a day of lost income for your business. Meanwhile your expenses such as wages, rent and loans, will need to be paid. That’s where good business insurances comes into the frame.

Business interruption insurance covers the loss of income that a business suffers after a disaster. This can include a business facility or outlet closing or the time to rebuild after a disaster. It is really business disruption insurance.

It is different to contents insurance. Contents insurance covers the physical damage to premises, your fitout and stock.

Business interruption insurance or business income insurance provides cover for a reduction in your revenue as a result of damage to your property. This includes lost profits. The damage to property must be an insured event.

It can also cover extra costs for business relocation. It is designed to put your business in the same financial position it would have been in if no loss had occurred.

It is added to a business contents insurance cover and not sold as stand alone business interruption cover. It only pays claims if the cause of the loss is covered by the business material damage policy.

Our business interruption product covers a shortfall in gross profit due to a drop in revenue. It also cover the cost of engaging an accountant or other professional to prepare your claim.

Additional costs to resume your business are a feature of this product. These increased costs can include re-writing valuable papers and records, relocation and temporary equipment to operate replacement premises.

You can chose cover for up to 12 months of business interruption, up to 18 months and up to 24 months.

Small business owners can purchase additional cover for natural disaster for an extra premium. Natural disaster insurance includes earthquake, volcanic eruption, geothermal activity and tsunami.
