  • Why is this cover important?

    A Business Insurance policy helps to protect those aspects of your business to which you value most and could not carry on your own. Business Insurance is not a “one size fits all” cover, we want to hear about your business, big or small, to determine what level of cover is required, and tailor a policy to suit your exact needs.

  • POLICY COVER CAN INCLUDE

    As a business owner there is nothing more important than having comprehensive business insurance as the risks increase. The policies available through Citycover can cover:

    • Fire / Flood or Material Damage

      Covers your Building and Contents/Equipment against losses due to Fire, Storm and tempest, Earthquake, and Malicious Acts. Cover is automatically extended to include Accidental Damage or Loss.

      Damage to property (Building, Contents, and Stock etc.) caused by Fire and nominated perils.

    • Burglary / Theft

      Covers your property for loss after a break and enter.

    • Business Interruption

      In the event that an insurable loss causes you to cease trading, this cover can replace any lost income during a period of time. Other covers such as accountant’s fees can also be insured under this section.

  • FAQs

    Frequently Asked Questions for Business Insurance.

    • What is a ‘Flood’?

      In June 2012, the Insurance Council of Australia and Federal Government agreed to adopt the below definition:-

      The definition of flood is:

      • The covering of normally dry land by water that has escaped or been released from the normal confines of:
      • Any lake, or any river, creek or other natural watercourse, whether or not altered or modified; or
      • Any reservoir, canal, or dam.
    • Can I pay my premiums by the month?

      Yes. All insurance offered by Citycover can be paid by the month through premium funders. If you chose to use the premium funder’s service, your monthly instalments will be tax deductible.

    • Is Flood cover automatic?

      No – most insurers do NOT offer Flood as an automatic cover. If you want this cover under your policy, please tell your Adviser.

    • What is “Underinsurance”?

      Also known as the “Average” or Co-Insurance” Clause, Underinsurance is the result of nominating a value for an asset which is too low to actually replace it in the event it is lost or damaged.

      Certain cover sections (Fire, Business Interruption – Income, and Electronic Equipment) contain the under-insurance clause. It is important to review the level of cover you have declared, as if the amount you have declared is too low, the insurer can apply a formula which limits their settlement to you for that loss. This can occur if you have declared less than 80% of the actual value of the risk/asset.

      Many businesses unknowingly under-insure as they apply heavy depreciation to their assets or simply forget to include certain assets into their calculations.

    • How do I make a claim?

      As your Adviser, you will always contact Citycover in the first instance and we will guide you through the claims process as this can vary from insurer to insurer.
