Business Interruption Insurance
Business Interruption Insurance protects your business income due to consequential loss caused by accidental perils or disasters while your business is suspended.
Typical coverages are:
– Profits that would have been earned
– Operating expenses and other costs still being incurred by the owned or rented property.
– Some policies cover the extra expenses for moving to, and operating from, a temporary location
– Getting Extra Expenses Insurance is an ideal option if your business is service oriented. It would compensate additional costs incurred by moving to a temporary location, installing replacement equipment including necessary advertisement in order to get your business immediately operating after a loss.
Business Interruption coverage can be helpful when:
-Fire, flood or other natural disaster at your business
-Failure of public utilities
-Denial of access due to damages to neighbouring premises
Sometimes consequential loss can be greater than physical loss to your property. Business Interruption Insurance is designed to get your business back on track without financial burden.
