Insurance companies offer commercial policies that combine protection from all major property and liability risks in one package called a Business Owners Policy (BOP). Created for small & mid-sized businesses, these package policies include:
For buildings and contents owned by the company — there are two different forms, standard and special, which provides more comprehensive coverage.
Business income insurance
Covers the loss of income resulting from a fire or other catastrophe that disrupts the operation of the business. It can also include the extra expense of operating out of a temporary location.
Covers your company’s legal responsibility for the harm it may cause to others. This harm is a result of things that you and your employees do or fail to do in your business operations that may cause bodily injury or property damage due to defective products, faulty installations and errors in services provided.
