Although the area is enjoying safer streets, Sunshine Coast insurance brokers still advise businesses to invest on their protection against crimes like theft, malicious damage and other factors that may interrupt their business. This is especially important for bars, 24-hour restaurants, and other establishments that operate in extended or all hours. When you have prolonged or odd operating hours, you’re more at risk of getting burglarised, and you might not be able to oversee all activities if you don’t monitor your business during those times. To help keep your business safe, get a fidelity/crime cover. A crime insurance can cover you against robberies, theft by fictitious employees, fraud, and other schemes included in your provisions.

Today’s business environment is as unpredictable as the weather. Corporate empires can take years to build but can be brought down in mere minutes. If you want to protect all the hard work you’ve put into establishing and managing your company, you have to make sure that your business is protected against the unexpected. An alarming number of businesses from all kinds of industries forego one of the most crucial components of an insurance program, management liability insurance. Every year, millions of dollars are spent on claims when the interests of a company’s management and staff come into conflict. Such losses could have been prevented by simply including management liability insurance with the company’s other risk programs.

Do you have an insurance policy that protects your business from the possible debilitating effects of being temporarily put out of action? Running a vet practice is not just about insuring your property, stock, and equipment; you have to take into consideration the loss of gross profit or revenue if your business is interrupted. You will be surprised with the high number of Australian veterinary clinics and animal hospitals that do not have business interruption insurance. If your insurance policy is triggered by malicious damage, burglary, or fire, the operations of your veterinary clinic will most likely halt (definitely reduce whilst your energy is focused elsewhere) and you will have plenty of lost hours. Are you willing to take the risk of cutting your business’ profitability for a few days, weeks, or even months?

The economy can be quite unpredictable, but even more erratic are the unfortunate catastrophes that can beset any business. Whether it is a fire accident, a freak storm, or even a devastating earthquake, such things are beyond the power of businesses that are at the mercy of such disasters. Fortunately, financial hedges such as business interruption insurance products can help businesses offset the losses they suffer from an unforeseen accident. An event like the recent hailstorm that hit the Brisbane area, resulting in costly damages to both residential and commercial properties, put to light just how expensive it can be to recover from a very physical interruption in business operations. As reported on the Courier Mail in November 28, 2014, the hail was so strong that it managed to smash the city’s various windows and tip over exposed planes on airfields.
