What can I claim for?

When considering making a business interruption claim, the coverage that is available to you is dependent upon the policy that you have. Our experts are able to assess these insurance contracts and in conjunction with our forensic accountants, advise you on what you are likely to be able to claim for.

Typical coverage under a business interruption policy will pay for:

  • Ongoing operating costs such as rent and insurance.
  • Wages.
  • Charges from loans acquired due to COVID.
  • Costs accrued to provide your employees with the essential tools to work from home.
  • Costs accrued to make your business a COVID safe environment.

If my business was not forced to close, can I still claim?

Yes, the current pandemic is very unusual circumstances and the latest judgement has ruled in your favour. If you decided to close all or part of your business to customers due to a fear of the pandemic, that would be seen as a reasonable reason to claim

In addition, due to the social distancing guidelines and lockdown measures it has been extremely difficult for businesses to stay open. Therefore, if you closed your business to protect your staff and customers, you may have a valid claim.
