Why cover Business Interruption?
Without the right level of Business Interruption cover, businesses are at significant risk of being unable to recover from a loss.
As many businesses can be tied to other aspects of the customer’s life, the implications of not holding this insurance or holding insufficient levels of cover could have life-changing consequences. Few businesses can absorb the loss of earnings that accompany a physical loss at their premises and continue to meet ongoing expenses while key assets are repaired or replaced. For many businesses, this process could take months.
Why have the right level of cover?
The right level of cover is important. The penalties for insufficient levels of insurance can be severe, cover can run out, or the indemnity period can expire before the business is fully reinstated. This can increase the costs to be absorbed by the business, potentially to the point where the business can no longer continue to operate.
Some policies will include underinsurance provisions, which will reduce the amount payable as a result of insufficient cover being bought at the outset.
