What is Business Interruption Insurance?

Business interruption insurance can help make sure your business keeps running after an unexpected event.

Most businesses have ongoing expenses that you need to pay even if you’re not able to operate such as staff wages, supplier invoices, rent or loan repayments.

Business interruption insurance can get you through a temporary crisis by protecting your cashflow – so you can pay these expenses and help ensure the future of your business.

The cover is arranged by reviewing your business and establishing an agreed ‘gross profit’ margin. It is provided for a specified period known as an ‘indemnity period’ and can range from 6 months up to 24 months (or even higher if required). You can also choose those things you do not want to cover.

Why do you need this policy?

Here's an example:


Darren, a cabinet maker rents one of a small group of five factory’s in an industrial estate.

Overnight one of the other tenants has a fire which unfortunately spreads into Darren's business damaging stock and contents. He was unable to work while the building was undergoing repairs and also required some vital tools to be replaced.

With Business Interruption Insurance, Darren can continue to pay his bills. He can even relocate to a temporary location and continue to work to ensure his customers receive their orders on time.
