Underinsurance: Don’t risk it!

Many small- and medium-sized businesses in the UK are risking their own survival by unwittingly remaining underinsured.

The Building Cost Information Service (BCIS) report, although conducted in 2012, revealed that 40% of businesses do not have enough business interruption cover to get them back on their feet. Furthermore, in 25% of SME claims reviewed by the FCA in 2015, the indemnity period expired before they returned to the normal trading position.
