A natural disaster like the Christchurch earthquake or flash flooding can affect business in more ways than just exterior damage; it can directly affect the people we employ. Covering your business and your people is exactly what Loss of Revenue offers, helping you cover income costs after a major disaster and looking after what’s most important to the business: the people you employ.
Loss of revenue insurance can help cover the income lost due to disaster-related closing of the business facility or due to the rebuilding process after a disaster. With the right level of cover, your business will stay afloat when the unexpected happens and you’ll be able to pay wages to your employees and get your feet back on the ground.
