In light of the recent COVID-19 pandemic, many people are wondering what business interruption insurance is and if it will help cover the closure of their business in certain circumstances.
- Business interruption insurance covers the loss of income that a business suffers for certain reasons, such as a disaster like a fire or a flood at the business premises.
- This type of insurance may also cover a business that has closed due to government actions. Including the mandated shutdown of all non-essential businesses during COVID-19.
- It can sometimes cover other expenses but policies can vary significantly, so always check the wording in your policy and ask if you are unsure.
- This type of coverage can be a standalone policy or can be added on to a business’ property insurance policy.
