Uncertainty is a difficult subject but one that must be addressed if you are to guarantee the smooth-running nature and stability of your business.
Most business owners don’t think twice when it comes to taking out insurance cover to protect their buildings, contents, equipment or stock.
However, businesses often fail to protect their most important asset, their own staff. Some risks are uncontrollable and an unforeseen serious illness or even the death of a staff member can have a serious effect if the correct type of insurance is not in place.
It is therefore crucial that you implement the right types of business protection insurance to ensure that you, your staff and the future of your business are protected from risk.
The Benefits of Business Protection Assurance
Business protection is designed to safeguard companies from any financial losses that would be incurred if a key staff member or owner were to die or be diagnosed with a critical or terminal illness.
Having this type of insurance in place has numerous advantages:
It encourages businesses to identify their own risks and put solutions in place
It helps businesses successfully pay off any debts they may have
It protects profits
It enables replacements for key members of staff if circumstances require it
It provides a cost-effective method for helping businesses secure their futures
It protects the livelihoods of employees
Types of Business Protection
There are a number of different types of business protection available to help safeguard your business from unforeseen circumstances:
Key Person – Profit Protection
The business receives policy proceeds which can be used to help replace a key member of staff. This type of policy also assists in covering the loss of any profits which may occur as a result.
Key Person - Loan Protection
Funds are received by the business and used to pay off any outstanding loans that the company may have.
Included within this policy are any bank loans or director loan accounts which would be required to be paid following a staff member’s death.
Share - Ownership Protection
This policy involves the shares of a business and the business owner.
If the business owner is diagnosed with a critical illness or passes away, the policy funds can be used to help purchase their share of the business.
Don’t put yourself or your staff at risk by being an unprotected business. Look upon business protection as a key priority in the safe-running of your company and as the most effective way to safeguard you and your staff from unknown and uncontrollable factors.
