    Property Damage

    This generally refers to the buildings included in your business assets and includes the structure as well as permanent fixtures and the surrounding grounds (driveways, patios, paths and outbuildings). A policy can also be extended to cover machinery and equipment that is critical in running your business.


    Any business which holds a high amount of stock, whether that’s to wholesalers or directly to consumers, should consider stock insurance. A policy can cover the cost price of your stock, typically including raw materials, work in progress, finished goods and office supplies.
