Business interruption insurance
Business interruption insurance is a retrospective cover that may provide some interim payment towards costs for businesses, only once there is clarity over the degree of the loss, but surety of its support would be enough to see many businesses through the crisis.
Government and business may have misjudged the potential access to cash support via this route.
Bira, along with other members of the Independent Retailers Confederation (IRC) are calling upon Government and insurance brokers to challenge policies where there is ambiguity.
