Business Interruption Insurance
What would you do if a fire impacted the operation of your production line and prevented you from serving clients for a day or more? Or what if a pipe leak caused a system outage or extended downtime, leaving your production line inoperable? These and other events can destroy your ability to serve clients and bring in revenue, which can have a major long-term impact on the viability of your business.
Business interruption insurance compensates you for lost income if your manufacturing facility cannot operate as normal due to damage that is covered under your commercial property insurance policy, such as fire or water damage. Business interruption insurance covers the revenue you would have earned, based on your financial records, had the incident not occurred. The policy also covers operating expenses, like electricity, that continue even though business activities have come to a temporary halt.
Note: Actual policies must be consulted for specific terms and conditions.
