Business Interruption or Destruction

Unless you have vast cash reserves and can afford to fund your own business recovery, you should strongly consider business interruption insurance if you answer YES to any one of the following :

1. I or my Business owns commercial property?

2. My Business is a manufacturer?

3. My Business is a wholesaler / Importer / Distributor ?

4. My Business is a retailer?

5. My Business operates in a niche or specialist market?

6. My Business relies on key stock, equipment, supplier or customer, which is not  able to be immediately replaced?

7. My Business is financed by debt?

8. My Business is Secured by my family home?

9. My Business would lose revenue if I was unable to operate from our existing Building?

10. My Business could keep operating after a loss but there may be significant increased costs?

11. It would be difficult to find alternative premises?

12. Our staff are key to the businesses future success?

13. My Business does not have a business continuity plan?

14. My Business is seasonal. We cannot afford to lose our peak season?

15. My Business relies on Utilities?
