FAQs

Questions to ask yourself
Here are some FAQ's most commonly ask by peers with in your field.
How much should I insure my contents and general property for?
Your contents and general property should be insured for new replacement value. This means you need to work out the cost to replace the items and property with brand new items that have a similar function, output and construction to that of the original property.
How can I work out the sum insured for my Property (building)?
The sum insured you nominate under your property section should reflect the cost to rebuild your building completely. This not only means the cost to rebuild the property itself, but additional costs such as removal of debris, architect & engineer fees and council fees. If you're unsure of how you can calculate this, a professional valuation may be of help to ensure you are insured for the correct amount.
What happens if I underinsure?
If you take out cover for Property, Business Interruption and Electronic Equipment, your sum insured must reflect new replacement value of the assets. If you do not insure for new replacement value, it means your assets may be underinsured, and in the event of a claim, the amount you are paid can be proportionally reduced in line with the amount you are underinsured.

I’ve received my documents, and my business name is incorrect, what should I do?
Please contact our team immediately to have your business name corrected. Remember that your policy should be in your registered entity’s name, and not your trading name. All details such as ‘Pty Ltd’ as well as names of all owners/insureds must also be included. If these details are incorrect or incomplete, the claims process can become complicated, and a claim may even be denied.

I’m moving to another premises, what should I do?
If you're planning to move premises, you need to contact our team before you move to ensure enough time to update your address. If you move and don’t have your insurance updated, you could find yourself uninsured, because the policy will be insuring the nominated old address.

What does Contents include?
Contents includes all Items owned by you which are kept on your business premises, but do not form part of the building structure - imagine tipping your clinic building upside down - everything that would fall out PLUS any fixtures and fittings which belong to you are classified as 'contents'.

What is the difference between Property and General Property under your Business Insurance policy?
​The Property section allows you to insure assets that are located at the premises you conduct your business from, (the premises that is listed on your policy schedule) - ie the building contents and the building itself. General Property is intended for goods that you take away from your business premises, such as your laptop and mobile phone.

What is the difference between Property Section and Burglary Sections of the policy?
Assets and items insured under the Property Section are covered for insured events such as fire, storm, earthquake and lightning damage. If you’d also like these to be covered for theft from the premises, then you will need to select the Burglary option.

Can I take out Glass cover if I’m a tenant?
Yes, sometimes tenancy agreements may require you to take out insurance for the glass at the premises. In the event of a claim, you may be required to provide a copy of your lease agreement.

I already hold Public Liability Insurance under another policy. Do I need to select this cover under this policy too?
In some cases, buildings or other assets, could be owned under a different name, than the name you run your business through. For example some buildings may be owned under a family members name, a superannuation fund, or under a company name that isn't associated with your business. It’s important to be prudent when it comes to making sure your insurance is in order, and that includes making sure the assets you own are insured correctly. You should checking the ownership details of your building, and ensure they are noted correctly on your insurance. If the ownership of your building is different to the registered entity you run your business through, and this hasn’t been included under your existing Public Liability Insurance, then you may require a separate policy for your liability exposure.

Professional Indemnity Insurance
This provides cover in the event a third party alleges that you have been negligent in performing your services or giving advice, and as a result, they have suffered injury or financial loss.1
Public Liability Insurance
Public Liability Insurance helps protect your business against liability for third-party personal injury or property damage arising out of your business activities. For example, if a client or visitor was to slip and fall while on your business premises, you would look to this policy to cover the claim.

While these events may seem rare, if they do occur, the financial impacts can be very significant. As a Hospitality business, you likely have significant interaction with clients, therefore Public Liability is a crucial cover to consider for your business, whether that’s at your premises, or out in public.1
