Property insurance provides protection against most risks to property, such as fire, theft and some weather damage. This includes specialized forms of insurance such as fire insurance, flood insurance, earthquake insurance, home insurance, or boiler insurance. Property is insured in two main ways—open perils and named perils.
Open perils cover all the causes of loss not specifically excluded in the policy. Common exclusions on open peril policies include damage resulting from earthquakes, floods, nuclear incidents, acts of terrorism, and war. Named perils require the actual cause of loss to be listed in the policy for insurance to be provided. The more common named perils include such damage-causing events as fire, lightning, explosion, and theft.

- Furniture, fixtures and fittings

This is an all risk form of policy wording and this is much wider than named peril policies.This Policy provides cover against accidental physical loss or damage to specified items as a result of any cause, which is not specifically excluded from the policy. Therefore, rather than listing what is covered, this policy only lists what is not covered. Cover under this policy included but not limited to all perils mentioned under “Fire and Allied Perils”.
This policy also covers Theft or Attempted Theft (by violent and forcible entry to or exit from the premises).
Business interruption insurance is a type of insurance that covers the loss of income that a business suffers after a disaster like fire etc. The income loss covered under this policy may be due to disaster-related closing of the business facility or due to the rebuilding process after a disaster. This policy also covers certain standing charges that continue irrespective of the situation that the insured is placed in, like bank interests, employee’s salaries, rent, electricity etc.
It differs from property insurance in that a property insurance policy only covers the physical damage to the business, while the business interruption policy covers the profits that would have been earned. This extra policy provision is applicable to all types of businesses, as it is designed to put a business in the same financial position it would have been in if no loss had occurred.
This type of coverage is not sold as a stand-alone policy but can be added onto the business’ property insurance policy (Property All Risks or Fire Insurance Policy). Since business interruption is included as part of the business’ primary policy, it only pays out if the cause of the loss is covered by the property insurance policy.
This cover takes into consideration the following aspects, which should be addressed when opting for this cover, as follows:
- Gross Profit
- Net Profit
- Standing charges
- Annual Turnover
- Period of Indemnity
