Business income coverage — Commercial Property Insurance covers the lost revenue suffered by a business when the destruction of its premises from the covered cause of damage causes it to slow down or stop operations. A business is protected against losses from the destruction of its premises from the insured’s actions.
If the building is physically damaged from a cause of loss that is covered under the commercial property insurance policy, you still get the insurance covered by your Business Income insurance policy. If the commercial property insurance policy does not cover flooding, if a business is displaced due to flooding, a business owner cannot obtain business income insurance (business interruption).
Known as Contingent Business Interruption Insurance, Contingent Property Insurance covers loss of business income that results from the damaged property you rely on, but do not own. Business Income Insurance, also known as Business Interruption Insurance, helps cover loss of revenue when the physical assets of a company are damaged and you are unable to run the business due to specific hazards covered by your policy.
Business income insurance provides you with insurance to pay your loss of revenue and operational expenses should your business have to close temporarily because of damage to your property.
Business income loss insurance, together with additional expenses coverage, covers net lost revenue or profits that would have been earned had no significant loss occurred as a result of a covered incident. When your business income policy includes Contingent Loss Coverage, the loss in net income is not limited to any particular amount, but instead, the policy covers lost profits to your business while the damaged property is being restored, for up to 12 months.
Contingent business interruption insurance covers the business income losses incurred when a third-party distributor or supplier experiences a labor stoppage causing production or services to cease at an insured business. For example, if a fire disables a retail store, preventing it from selling goods and earning income for a period while it is closed for repairs, Contingent Business Interrupture Coverage can help compensate for income losses, as well as ongoing essential daily expenses such as payroll and taxes.
Business interruption insurance generally does not cover damage or losses caused by floods, earthquakes, and mudslides, though consumers may purchase supplemental flood insurance. While the coverage provided by Business Interruption Insurance will vary depending on the specific language of your policy, and laws and court decisions in your state, most Business Interruption Insurance provides coverage only if a direct physical loss or damage occurs to the property on your business premises.
Business interruption insurance covers the operational expenses and lost revenue incurred for a period that results from the company closing down or being unable to function normally due to physical damage to the property of the business due to the covered peril.
Ordinances or laws (sometimes called commercial ordinances) — In policies providing coverage for additional costs of fixing a building to make it up to code, ordinances or laws may also cover the losses from a business interruption caused by an extended time required to make repairs.
Civil authority coverage generally applies after a disaster event in which physical damage has occurred in a certain vicinity to an insured’s business, even though the business itself has not been damaged. These forms provide coverage for the actual loss of business revenue and additional expenses caused by the government’s ordering of a closed location to the insured or the quarantine of the whole or a portion of the location, and by the government suspending certain modes of public transportation.
