Part 2 of 2023 Business Planning: Business Interruption Coverage

This is the 2nd part to our 2023 Business Planning.

Business interruption coverage is crucial for any company: Size and vertical.

Running a company can be difficult without the right business insurance. One coverage most business owners need is business interruption insurance, also known as business income insurance and contingent business interruption coverage. It can help replace income you lose if you can’t open temporarily after a covered loss, like property damage.

How Much Business Interruption Insurance Coverage Do I Need?

Every business interruption insurance policy will have a coverage limit. This is the amount of coverage you choose to have if you suffer a loss. It can be hard to figure out how much business interruption insurance you need. A good rule of thumb is to use your gross earnings and projections to estimate future profits and determine the right amount of coverage. Remember, if your business interruption costs exceed the coverage limit you choose, you’ll have to pay out of pocket for the extra expenses.

Benefits of business interruption coverage includes:

1. Financial Protection: Business interruption insurance provides financial protection for companies in South Carolina in the event of a disruption to their operations, such as a natural disaster or pandemic.

2. Loss of Income: This type of insurance compensates a business for loss of income and covers ongoing operating expenses during the interruption.

3. Continuity of Operations: Business interruption insurance helps companies maintain continuity of operations, allowing them to recover more quickly and get back to business as usual.

4. Protection of Assets: This insurance helps protect a company’s assets and investments, including its physical property and equipment, as well as its reputation and customer base.

5. Flexible Coverage: Business interruption insurance offers flexible coverage options that can be tailored to meet the specific needs of a company.

6. Peace of Mind: Having business interruption insurance in place provides peace of mind for business owners and employees, knowing that they have a safety net in place in the event of an unexpected disruption.

7. Compliance with Contracts: In some cases, having business interruption insurance may be a requirement for businesses that have contracts with suppliers or customers, or are required to maintain insurance coverage for regulatory compliance.
