Designed with small-to-medium businesses in mind

BusinessFirst interruption insurance^ is easily adapted to suit your budget and the level of cover your business requires. This also means that when the size or nature of your business changes, it’s easy to change your cover to suit.

Affordable and flexible cover

To  help protect your business income after a loss of assets, BusinessFirst interruption insurance includes three core types of cover:

  • Gross profit
  • Reasonable costs for you to assess and prepare a valid claim
  • Reasonable additional costs you incur in order to continue operating

Choosing your indemnity period

Your indemnity period is the time it would take to get your business back on its feet after a loss of assets. This can be quite different from one business to another, so rather than having a set time, we help your business to choose an indemnity period that suits. Here are some things that could influence the period you need:

  • Buildings – are alternative premises available?
  • Machinery – can it be replaced easily?
  • Stock – can it be easily sourced?
  • Records – can they be replaced?
  • Market share – what will your competitors do?
