Business interruption insurance is included in most business owners policies. It’s the coverage that will compensate you for lost sales due to a covered loss or disaster.
If you have a commercial package policy, you’ll likely need to purchase business interruption insurance separately (or add it to the package), if you have a businessowners policy, you should make sure that the amount included on the policy is sufficient for YOUR business.
According to FEMA, after a catastrophe or disaster 40% of businesses do NOT reopen and within one year an additional 25% will fail. The vast majority of these cases are because the business owner did not have sufficient business interruption insurance to keep them afloat while the business was being rebuilt and customer traffic patterns resume normal.
A properly designed business insurance policy will provide you with money to cover –
- Lost Revenue
- Fixed Expenses (rent, utilities etc.)
- Costs from operating from a temporary location or increased costs of doing business in current location
