Business Expenses insurance pays a monthly benefit to cover fixed business costs if you suffer an illness or injury and are unable to work.

It works on a similar principle to income protection, as it pays a monthly benefit. However, its purpose is significantly different.

Business Expenses insurance is designed to cover the fixed day-to-day costs (up to the monthly benefit) of running your business in your absence, such as the cost of a locum, rent, staff salaries, equipment expenses, loans and other business overheads like electricity and cleaning bills.

Like Income Protection, Business Expenses policies are very flexible and can be tailored to suit your individual needs and circumstances.
