Why do you need Business Insurance?

Whether you’re a florist, dentist, or an accountant, there are certain risks that most businesses face like fire, theft, natural disaster or employee injury. Business Insurance provides cover against these unforeseen events that could lead to substantial financial loss.

Business Insurance Bullet 1

You can’t predict what might happen to your business in the future. There are many factors that could threaten its productivity, such as unexpected fire damage to your property, theft, a natural disaster, or the injury of a key employee.

Business Insurance Bullet 2

Without cover you might be exposing your company to risk; a single blunder could drain your hard-earned resources and force you to cease operation.

A quick guide to Business Insurance

Commercial Property Insurance | Hippo.co.za

Commercial Property Insurance

  • Commercial Property Insurance protects the commercial property of the policyholder from damage in the event of fire, theft or natural disaster. Apart from the brick and mortar structure of the property, installed machinery and equipment used for business operations, which would be very expensive to replace or repair if damaged, could also be covered. Depending on the policy, there are also clauses to allow you to claim financial compensation if business activity is reduced or stopped entirely.

Credit Risk Insurance

  • This type of Business Insurance covers businesses from the potential risk of financial loss due to non-payment by debtors to whom they have credited money to. If a business has sold a product or service to a customer who has a certain amount of time to pay for the product or service, and they don’t do so, the business will be financially covered to ensure business and cash flow continues, while protecting the balance sheet against bad debt losses.

Product Liability Insurance

  • Product Liability Insurance covers a business financially from any possible claims a customer might make if injury, illness or death occurs from the use of one of their defective products. A product can be classified as software, equipment or food that the business has supplied. If this occurs, the business will have the financials available to pay for any legal fees or medical costs that arise. Without this type of insurance, the business will have to use its own money.
