What is Business Interruption Insurance?
If your business suffered an unexpected disruption, such as fire, flood or storm, or a major supplier closes because of one of these events, how long would it take to get it up and running again? And how much would you lose along the way.
Business interruption insurance can help make sure your business keeps running smoothly after an unexpected event, by covering the turnover that is lost – so you can recover and rebuild.
“Insurance can help your
business get back on its feet if
things go wrong. You can insure
against disasters and for business
disruption to cover your losses
during the recovery period.”
Dept. of Innovation, Industry
and Science, 2018
Who should consider it?
For most business owners, there are ongoing expenses that you need to pay even if you’re not generating any revenue – like staff wages, supplier invoices, rent and loan repayments.
Business interruption insurance can get you through a temporary crisis by protecting your cash flow – so you can pay these expenses, and help ensure the future of your business.
