Business Premises

Sounds rather official, doesn't it? However, it can be a simple but secure lock-up where you keep your equipment. Your business has grown, congratulations, you now have quite a lot of equipment, and it takes up too much space at home. Business premises will cover your buildings and often includes the fixtures and fittings as well.

Business Interruption

If you rely on your business' income you should consider business interruption. If your business is unable to trade as normal, for example there is flooding and you are unable to get to your equipment at your premises, this cover will protect you against financial loss.
