Business interruption insurance claims
If like many businesses in the UK, you have suffered considerable loss of income and other damage due to being forced to temporarily close during the coronavirus pandemic, you may be able to claim business interruption losses.
Most businesses have insurance cover for business interruption, however, owners and directors are unsure if they will be covered for losses caused by the pandemic. See our FAQs below for further details.
Following the recent Supreme Court decision, some insurers have confirmed potential coverage, others are either failing to confirm cover or have denied cover completely. Either way, claims can be complex and time-consuming.
