Recent statistics compiled by the Insurance Council of Australia (ICA) has shown during the Newcastle Storms, Brisbane Storms / Floods, Various Fires and Bush Fires of recent times, only twenty one per cent (21%) of Businesses had Business Interruption, Consequential Loss, Loss of Profits, Weekly Benefits (refer to it as you like) Insurance cover.
Of those twenty one per cent (21%) only six to seven per cent (6% – 7%) had adequate Insurance which allowed those Businesses to return to normal trading conditions and continue in Business. The remainder fell by the wayside after twelve (12) months)
The question begs….
”What are Business Advisors telling their Clients about the critical need for this cover”?
OK, so you advise your Client to speak to an Insurance Broker. It might interest you to know that a great many Insurance Brokers lack experience and knowledge when it comes to Business Interruption Insurance.
Consider the implications if a smart Lawyer argued that the Accounting Practice owed a Duty of Care to the Client in addition to the Insurance Broker who advised the client to …”check with your Accountant as to what the Sums Insured should be….”
Who would bear the greatest proportion of the claim, the Broker or the Accountant. I wonder when the last time your Practice reviewed their Professional Indemnity limits.
