What is Business Interruption Insurance?

Insurance is there to help when the unexpected happens. Though there are many specific types of insurance - business interruption insurance tries to maintain the consistency of your business transactions when a catastrophe strikes. If your business closes due to a disaster, this insurance can pay for revenue you lose, standard expenses, and relocation costs. 

Benefit #1: Lost Revenue

If your business is unable to provide products for sale, help customers, or work with clients due to damage, you will get compensated for lost revenue. This section will keep your doors open by maintaining your cash flow. 

Benefit #2: Employee Wages

Without pay, employees will not be able to wait for work. Interruption insurance allows you to continue making sure payroll goes through for your workers. Ensure the length of payroll coverage for your policy - standard lengths are up to one year.

Benefit #3: Taxes

Even when your business is in a short-term shutdown, you’ll have to pay taxes. Expect to meet both quarterly and annual tax requirements. Business interruption insurance will offer you the funds to cover your taxes in the event of a disaster. 

Benefit #4: Lease or Rent and Loan Payments 

Even if you cannot open for business at a leased or rented location, you may still need to make payments. Business interruption insurance covers this cost when you aren’t making money. In this way, you will be able to focus on getting your business back up and running. 

Business loans are still in effect after a disaster. Business interruption insurance covers your payments when your doors are temporarily shut. 

Benefit #5: Relocation Costs

Some disasters cause business owners to relocate. Business interruption insurance can help to cover moving costs and new location rental costs.
