Fire and
Allied Perils

Covers businesses for damages plant, machinery, fixtures and fittings caused by amongst others: – fire, lightening, explosion, storm, wind, water, hail or snow, earthquake, amongst many.

Tips: Fire and Allied Perils

  • Always base the sum insured on the new replacement value, taking into account the escalation and post-loss inflation of rebuilding costs.
  • Remember to include tenant improvements (e.g. flooring, partitioning, etc) plus demolition and debris removal costs in the sum insured.
  • Stock – Insure at the cost price to you (inclusive of VAT), NOT at the retail/resale price. Be mindful of stacking heights and ensure that stock is stored on pallets.
  • Buildings – Always insure for the full replacement value, and NOT market value which bears no relationship to rebuilding costs. Include boundary and other walls, parking areas, driveways and all other structures.
  • Replacement value must include cost of demolition, debris removal, and erection of hoardings during rebuilding. Also include professional fees (e.g. architects, quantity surveyors) for reinstatement, limited to 15% of rebuilding costs.
  • Remember to also include air conditioning units and other landlord fixtures and fittings.
  • Theft from the building, or of goods in the open (e.g. air conditioning units, manhole covers, piping, neon signs and other signage, gutters, etc), is not covered unless specified.

Business
Interruption Insurance

Protects businesses against interruptions that may result in loss of profits caused by natural or manmade hazards such as terrorism, fires and explosions, earthquakes, windstorms, bomb threats, hazardous waste spills, workplace fatalities (deaths) and product tempering.

We also have:

  • Public utilities interruption cover that protects government companies such as telecommunications, electricity and water supply against business interruption.
  • Prevention of access cover that protects businesses in the event that they are not able to access their premises and operate due to amongst others, fire, flooding, etc.

Tips: Business Interruption Insurance

  • Business interruption cover can be extended to include key suppliers and key customers. In the event of one of them suffering an insured peril, and consequently affecting your profitability, you will be able to claim your loss.
  • Public utilities interruption cover is available for the interruption of public utilities such as telecommunications, electricity and water supply. Interruption as the result of breakdown must exceed 24 hours.
  • Prevention of access cover is available should your premises be inaccessible to customers due to one of the insured perils (fire, flooding, etc.) and this results in a loss of revenue. This cover is normally subject to a time excess.

Please note:

  • The indemnity period selected must be sufficient to enable you to reinstate the damaged property and get back to full production and turnover. Bear in mind problems such as availability of production machinery, loss or market, etc.
  • When calculating loss of gross profit, remember to include all standing charges and net profit. Property owners should include loss of rent, and service organisations’ loss of revenue; the sum insured being the full annual revenue earned.
  • In the event of a loss, the claim is quantified by applying the rate of gross profit to the reduction in the turnover because of the claim. The rate of gross profit is expressed as a percentage and is the proportion of gross profit to turnover. The rate of gross profit can be calculated by looking at the past trading results in your audited financials. Statements.
