Business Interruption Insurance

When Bad Things Happen

While statistics vary, a majority of small businesses closed for even a short time after a fire, flood, or major damage never reopen or fail within a short time after reopening. If a company loses its computer information and files, the rate of failure is higher. Without business income insurance, many companies simply get too far behind financially to recover.

The purpose of business income insurance is to provide business owners with an agreed amount of monthly income to replace the revenue lost while the firm is closed. The cash flow from business income insurance is used to:

  • Replace profits lost during closure of the business
  • Cover fixed costs that continue whether the business is open or closed
  • Provide income to essential employees
  • Maintain licensing payments and other operational commitments
  • Provide funds to relocate the business in temporary spaces
  • Cover extra expenses caused by the closure and any temporary relocation

Without business income insurance, many companies lose essential employees. Small companies risk loss or contracts, relationships and access to key vendors. Seasonal businesses suffering losses without business income insurance may lose the ability to meet customer demands if the business reopens too late in the season. Each business faces different risks from temporary or extended closures due to floods, fires and other causes. Customized coverage is available to meet individual company needs.

Our experienced representatives understand the importance of a proper level of business income insurance coverage tailored to your specific business situation. You’ll find the coverage surprisingly affordable and the source of peace of mind concerning your ability to survive a natural or man-made disaster.

Many property leases give the owner of a property the choice of whether or not to rebuild after a fire or other major disaster. Without business income insurance you will find it necessary to replace existing income as well as find funds to cover the costs of relocation. Even if you carry adequate property insurance to cover the physical losses, only business income insurance provides the funds to replace normal operating revenue.
