Business interruption insurance can mean the difference between the successful continuance of your enterprise, or its catastrophic demise.

PIB’s designated business interruption specialists will work with you to deliver robust shielding suitable for your particular enterprise. Ensuring that you, your staff, and your company thrive for the long term.

Additionally, business interruption insurance features as a crucial component in our complete business insurance package.

Business Interruption Cover Explained

The majority of commercial insurance policy formats are self-explanatory and targeted — e.g. motor fleet insurance safeguards your vehicles, while property insurance defends your bricks and mortar.

However, what is often neglected is the most crucial component of all — your business income. While robust building insurance will cover physical damage and rebuilds — it will not always address any business loss experienced as a result.

Your enterprise exists to create healthy revenues — not simply to deliver welcome annual profits, but more practically, to ensure you can address day-to-day expenses. Without sales, or a severe reduction in this income, you cannot pay rent, suppliers, utilities, and even staff.

Business interruption compensation can be considered the same as personal income protection — but for commercial concerns.

If an event impacts your revenues, this cover helps you to address pressing liabilities in the short term — allowing you to concentrate on returning your operation to a sales-generating position.

Do You Need Business Income Interruption Insurance?

Consider this — if your commercial concern’s sales ceased today, how long would your operation survive?

Experiencing a serious business interruption loss can rapidly threaten your operation’s existence — even if you have significant retained profits. Daily expenses accelerate cumulatively — leading to disgruntled suppliers, cash-chasing utility companies, unfulfilled loan payments, and unhappy staff.

And, it’s concerning how an interruption of business revenues can easily occur.

It’s not just the most significant events of flood, fire, and storm that can impact your enterprise. Losses in income can be experienced through seemingly less catastrophic events, including:

  • Vandalism to a necessary piece of manufacturing equipment.
  • Cyber threats — for example, malware, phishing, and DoS (denial of service) attacks.
  • Long-term machinery breakdown.
  • Pedestrian path closures for businesses relying on footfall.
  • Government curfews.
  • Product recalls.
  • Tool theft.
  • Product contamination.

Irrespective of the scale of your operation, PIB will deliver tailored large or small business interruption insurance that addresses the intrinsic trading risks of your enterprise.

What Does Business Income Protection Not Cover?

As one of the most respected business interruption insurance companies in Sydney, PIB will provide exceptional protection to ensure the continuance of your operation.

However, it’s important to bear in mind that some events are not included in your policy.
Claiming for business interruption reimbursement for the following isn’t permitted:

  • Market-driven trading causing a loss in profits.
  • Future financial losses.
  • Insolvency and bankruptcy.
  • Loss of income due to your malicious acts.
  • Anything not mentioned in your policy.

Furthermore, it’s vital that when taking out business revenue cover, you consider the length of time your operation will take to recover from a challenging event. As this can vary depending on the nature of your enterprise — PIB’s specialist advisors will work with you to calculate the insured period required.

Usually, the longer the interruption indemnity period, the higher the business income insurance cost. Typically, commercial enterprises will protect their losses of income for a 12, 24, or 36-month timeframe.
