Business Insurance At A Glance
A Look at Business Insurance
Regardless if you run a multi-national organisation or a mum and dad storefront, you will always remember how much work went into creating your company. In order to protect your efforts and investment, the correct business cover is essential.
Consider how often unexpected perils happen to others; you would be overly optimistic to believe an accident or disaster will never harm your business. When you have proper insurance cover you reduce your risk of losing property, stock, supplies, and your livelihood.
A Business Insurance Case Study
You are the owner of a small printing shop. Late on a Saturday night, a water pipe ruptures and your entire shop floods over the weekend. The flood destroys your equipment, stock, electronics, and finished orders scheduled for pick up. The damage to your structure is extensive, and major renovations are necessary. You are not able to operate your business for at minimum, six weeks.
Even though this is a daunting scene, if you have proper insurance cover, you will not suffer the total loss of your business.
If you need more convincing, consider the following statistics:
- Australia is experiencing and spending more on natural disasters that ever anticipated. By 2050, the estimated cost of these disasters will exceed 33 billion dollars.
- The Insurance Council of Australia notes that there is an extreme division among business size and the amount of cover they carry. 21.4 per cent of small businesses running from home is not insured. The number of Sole Traders without insurance is 24 per cent.
- Most SME’s do not have any kind of back-up financial plan; only 16 per cent report having a contingency plan. A full 35 per cent of SME’s say they would need to make substantial lifestyle changes if they were not able to work.
