Every business today faces both opportunity and risk; and for survival in this marketplace, it is essential that it has the right insurance coverage. Business owners can protect their organization, their business assets and their employees from financial risk by choosing appropriate business insurance with the right coverage.
Types of assets covered under small business insurance in Canada
The asset classes covered under business insurance includes office space (whether owned, or on lease), equipment, vehicles, inventory (raw material, semi-finished and finished goods), and business employees & partners, including self.
You can protect these assets by buying business insurance that meets your needs and is also easy on your budget.
Insurance for office space, equipment, vehicles, and inventory
You can protect your property & buildings in the event of destruction or damage caused by fire and other perils.
Protect your inventory at your business premises. If you run your business from home, you will need separate coverage for your business assets.
If your assets are damaged and you need to close down your business temporarily, business interruption insurance covers your loss of earnings until you resume business.
You can protect all vehicles owned by your business. If you use your personal vehicle for business, you need to inform your insurance company.
