Having property insurance or equipment breakdown insurance to help you recover from a natural or mechanical disaster is smart. Having protection against the loss of income or extra expenses incurred to keep your business running while your company’s operations are stalled by the rebuilding, repairs or restoration is genius.
Business Income insurance, also referred to as Business Interruption coverage, can be a bridge that helps you journey from a temporary closure to being fully back in business.
How does Business Income Insurance protect your net profit?
Business Income insurance can cover the loss of your net profit during a forced closure due to damage of tangible property in the event of a covered loss. This kind of insurance for small businesses can be vital for self-employed income protection.
A Business Income policy can help you by:
- Covering Ongoing Operating Expenses
- Mortgages and other loan payments
- Covering Missed Business Income due to the hiatus in operations
*Helpful Hint: Keep a copy of your financial records either off-site or in the cloud, so if disaster strikes your property —you can still access your accounting and easily show what your missed income will be and receive a payment faster.
How much does Business Income Insurance cost?
Several key factors can affect your commercial insurance rates:
- Your location, building, and business exposures
- The type of business you operate
- Your capability to continue producing goods and services at another temporary location if need be.

How does Extra Expense Insurance work with Business Income Insurance?
Extra Expense insurance can be added to your Business Income policy to cover additional expenses that can help you avoid or curtail the time period that your company is not operating. An Extra Expense Rider Can:
- Pay Relocation Expenses
- Rent at a temporary location
- Advertising to inform customers of new location
- Equipment to continue business operations at a different site
