Business interruption insurance is commonly found in the marketplace but often misunderstood.

The course explores how to calculate gross profit, sums insured, and indemnity periods before looking at declaration linked cover and how you can use business interruption covers to win business.

Key objectives:

  • Understand the main types of cover found in business interruption insurance.
  • Use a set of accounts to calculate a gross profit sum insured.
  • Explain where to offer alternative forms of cover for additional cost of working, rent and gross fees.

This course does not include claims handling, advanced profits or engineering insurance.
