Business Interruption Insurance

Business Interruption Insurance

Many organisations with business interruption insurance are looking to their policies for cover during the Coronavirus pandemic. The majority of these policies do not cover for pandemics, and so businesses can’t claim for losses. Most business interruption insurance policies cover the costs of physical damage, such as fire or floods. For cover because of a pandemic, you may require a specific pandemic business interruption insurance policy.

A lot of insurance providers offer this cover as an additional add-on or extra to existing business interruption policies.

Pandemic Business Interruption Insurance Explained

In most cases, business interruption insurance covers losses caused by physical damage to a business. For example, if a business has to close because of fire damage, there would not be cover for the loss of business. Most insurers do not generally include cover for the loss of business because of a pandemic.

You can purchase pandemic business interruption insurance separately or as an add-on to existing policies. This cover is sometimes known as cover for infectious diseases.

Pandemic business interruption insurance needs considering with caution, as it will not cover all situations. Some policies will only cover if a disease directly impacts a specific business, and therefore, doesn’t include closure because of a global pandemic. When buying pandemic business interruption insurance, it is essential to fully understand the terms and conditions. While you cannot predict the effects of a pandemic, it is worthwhile having protection in place to cover all possibilities.
