Did you know that 25% of businesses never reopen after a disaster? Owning a business comes with a lot of risks, even if it’s a small home-based business. Having the right type of insurance is so important for protecting it against hazards that can threaten its success.
Protects your business’ inventory, equipment, and fixtures against theft, loss, or damage. There are two main types of business policies: “named peril,” which protects against events listed in your policy, and “all risks,” which protects against all events except those specifically excluded in your policy.
This insurance can help keep things running while you recover. The most common type is “business income,” which covers lost revenue, payroll, and other operating expenses. You can also get “extra expense insurance” to cover costs like temporary relocation. Supply chain coverage can protect you if an event at your supplier interrupts your ability to do business.
1 out of every 3 small business owners has been sued or threatened with a lawsuit. General liability helps protect against this risk. The type and amount of coverage depends on your business, and can be tailored to fit your business’ specific risks. Some types are product liability, professional liability, and employment practices liability.
If an employee is injured on the job, this pays for medical treatment, covers lost wages, and protects you against lawsuits filed by injured workers. Generally, this is mandatory for all employers who have one or more employees, whether they’re full-time or part-time, including family members.
