By Compuquotes Team on March 27th, 2008

BUSINESS INCOME INSURANCE:

Definition:

  • (also known as BUSINESS INTERRUPTION INSURANCE) Commercial coverage that reimburses a business owner for lost profits and continuing fixed expenses during the time that a business must stay closed while the premises are being restored because of physical damage from a covered peril, such as a fire. Business interruption insurance also may cover financial losses that may occur if civil authorities limit access to an area after a disaster and their actions prevent customers from reaching the business premises. Depending on the policy, civil authorities coverage may start after a waiting period and last for two or more weeks.
