What is business income coverage?

Business income coverage is a commercial insurance add-on that pays when damages affect your company’s revenue. A prime example of business income assurance in practice would be the barbershop owner who, through no fault of his own experiences a power outage that leads to him having to close for a day. The business owner can recuperate his losses by filing a claim with his indemnity provider for lost income during the outage.

Another instance of business income assurance at its finest is the restaurant owner who loses his business to a natural disaster. The add-on can serve as a placeholder concerning daily earnings until the owner is able to get back on his feet and re-established. 

Business Income Limitations

Of course, with every good thing comes restrictions. Business income is no exception to this universal rule and comes with a few limitations. First, a business can only claim a maximum amount of coverage. You cannot expect to reap $500,000 in lost income if your policy only allows for claiming up to $50,000. Also, business income takes into account what is known as the "restoration period." It is only during the time of "restoration" that you can claim losses to income. You can expect funding to stop after you have gotten your Lees Summit, MO company back on its feet.
