Protecting Small Businesses from Unforeseen Risks

Protecting Small Business from Natural Risks

In 2021, India witnessed a staggering 1.6 million* fire accidents, resulting in the tragic loss of several lives. For small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), fires don’t have to spell the end of their business. These incidents also cost the nation about ₹1000# crores annually.

Small companies that own or lease commercial spaces and have movable or immovable assets are more prone to such risks. These dangers are hard to predict or prevent, but an Asset Insurance policy can help mitigate these risks.

    What is an Asset Insurance policy?

    An Asset Insurance policy is designed to safeguard a company’s physical assets in the event of unexpected occurrences such as fire, theft, or natural disasters.
    It covers the costs associated with replacement, repair, or reconstructing of all essential business assets, including computers, machinery, buildings, inventories, furniture, and fixtures. Even the cost of debris removal is covered in the policy.

    The Power of an Asset Insurance policy

    A massive fire erupted at a hotel in Mussoorie. The incident resulted in the complete destruction of the hotel before fire service personnel could bring the blaze under control. Fortunately, the hotel owner had bought an Asset Insurance policy, which fully compensated for the loss caused due to the fire.

    In another incident, a fire broke out in a branch office of a bank in Chennai. The fire damaged 2 cabins, including the ledgers stored within them, as well as several computers, their accessories, and at least 6 air conditioners. The fire was ignited by a short circuit in one of the computers that had been left turned on.

    Luckily, the presence of an Asset Insurance policy proved valuable. The policy covered the entire cost of replacing the damaged air conditioners, computers, and accessories. It also covered the expenses for repairing the two cabins that had been affected by the fire.

    Why invest in Asset Insurance policy?

    Here are the key reasons to consider this insurance:

    Protection of Valuable Assets

    Asset Insurance safeguards your business against substantial losses. It covers the loss of working capital, machinery, fittings, and other essential immovable assets, ensuring that you can quickly recover and rebuild.

    Preserving Financial Stability

    Many small businesses secure working capital loans against both company and personal assets. Asset Insurance protects these assets that have been hypothecated, preserving your financial stability and preventing personal financial liabilities.

    Sustaining Income-generating Capacity

    Asset damage severely impedes your business’s income-generating capacity. An Asset Insurance policy ensures that you receive compensation for these losses, helping your business stay afloat during the recovery process.

    Avoiding High-interest Loans

    Having Asset Insurance ensures that you avoid paying high interest rates on loans to rebuild your property after any fire incident, which could impact your balance sheet and operating profit for years.

    What’s not covered?

    • Deliberate, willful, or intentional acts
    • War, invasion, or war-like situations
    • Pollution or contamination
    • Loss of bullion or unset precious stones, and works of art unless declared separately
    • Consequential damage such as loss of like market capitalisation, loss of earning etc.

    Claims Roadmap

    Notify The Insurer

    1. Notify the Insurer

    As soon as an incident occurs that requires you to file a claim, it’s crucial to notify the insurer without any delay. Provide the insurer with the necessary claims documents, which include a copy of the FIR report and a report from the fire department.
    Thorough Review

    2. Independent Surveyor Assessment

    The insurer will appoint an independent surveyor to assess the damage caused by the incident. The surveyor’s role is to objectively evaluate the extent of the damage.
    Legal Counsel Engagement

    3. Claim Processing

    Subsequently, the insurer will process the claim based on the surveyor’s report. The claim amount will be determined in accordance with the policy terms and the findings of the assessment.
