Frequently Asked Questions
While every policy is different, the potential for business interruption insurance coverage is quite extensive. Lost revenue, rent or lease payments, and taxes are pretty standard, though you can also get a policy that covers relocation costs and employee wages.
For the most part, there are three primary types of business interruption insurance. Direct business interruption covers loss of income during the period of restoration of the business’s property. Extended business interruption includes the income that’s lost after the property is repaired but before it returns to its pre-loss level. Finally, contingent business interruption covers damage to the property of any of the business’s suppliers and consumers.
If you’re making a business interruption claim, you’ll need these primary kinds of documents:
