Insurance risk considerations during Coronavirus restrictions

By Performance
By now, many businesses will be operating remotely.

We all understand the importance of washing our hands and isolating unwell staff, but there are implications that remote working may have on your insurance. Whilst insurers’ approach to existing policies may change, until such time, businesses should adhere to their insurance policy requirements.

There may be additional considerations on your policies which you should look out for. Some of these may include:

  • Motor insurance – Location of vehicles, contents stored in vehicles and change of a vehicle’s usage.
  • Commercial Combined insurance – Unoccupancy of premises, lone working and obligations when notifying insurers of a claim.
  • Cyber & E-Commerce – Businesses that rely on revenue through their website should consider the implication of a denial of access to their website.
  • Fraudulent crime – Businesses may become more reliant upon email or telephone requests for payment which can create an increased risk of fraud.
