Covid-19 Business Information

In light of the recent Coronavirus events we want to reassure you that our staff are still available and working hard to support our clients and any new businesses which may need to discuss their insurance requirements. Please note that whilst our offices are closed, we have comprehensive diverts in place to make sure that you can get through to someone who can help.

We have collated all the information which may be of use to your business during these uncertain times. If there is something you cannot find on this page and would like some guidance on, then please get in touch using the contacts page below.

Government advice and resource information

Business interruption loan information

The UK government has provided a number of options that may be available to help you during these uncertain times, including The Business Interruption Loan Scheme. Information from the government can be found here.

If you would prefer to read a one page document summarising the information then click here.

It is important to ensure that the other aspects of your business continue to be covered to help protect against further incidents which do fall under the scope of cover.

Businesses that are closing need to be mindful of any obligations and possible exclusions/restrictions within their current insurance program with regards to any period their premises are unoccupied.

These could include:

1. Notification to insurers
2. Draining water tanks and switching off mains supplies
3. Regular visits to the premises
4. Additional security requirements
5. Automatic restrictions in cover

Please refer to your policy documents.
