What is business interruption insurance?

Business interruption insurance is an option that can be added to some commercial property insurance policies, which provides coverage for the loss of income in the event of a disaster. Prudent business owners know that the same fire, wind or water damage that could ruin their building will also keep them from being able to serve their customers and run their company.

Business interruption insurance will compensate you for lost income when you have to leave your building that is covered under your property insurance because of some kind of disaster. It covers the revenue you were unable to earn because of the disaster.

What types of losses does business interruption insurance cover?

We’ll use a fire as an example of a disaster that might strike a business. Whether the building burns to the grounds, or simply sustains irreparable fire, soot, smoke and ash damage (plus water damage from efforts to put the fire out), you stand to lose your contents, your structure, and your time. Business interruption insurance would cover lost income from the destroyed products, and for additional expenses of running the business if you must move to another location temporarily while the building undergoes repairs. It can cover things such as:

  • Lost revenue
  • Rent or lease payments
  • Employee pay
  • Taxes
  • Loan payments
  • Relocation expenses

If you have business interruption insurance, it is vital that you review the policy documents (read the fine print). In many business interruption insurance policies there will be stipulations such as:

  • The waiting period, which can be anywhere from 48 to 72 hours before benefits are payable
  • Document proof of loss
