Business Interruption insurance
Getting you back on your feet in times of crisis
The interruption to your business following a fire or other insured catastrophic event is often a more serious financial concern for your business than the actual physical damage to your property.
Business Interruption insurance covers consequential loss of profits and expenses as a result of an insured loss.
A ‘must have’ for all business
Studies conducted by the Insurance council austral indicate that over 50% of all SME’s which suffer a major interruption without an appropriate level of Business interruption will cease operation within three years of the interruption occurring.
