Is your business adequately protected?
A business protects it’s assets by purchasing insurance for buildings, stock, contents etc and it’s also important that a company insures the earning capacity of the business. “It is a fact that after a major loss, 50% of businesses do not survive as they do not have the correct policy cover in place, so it is CRITICAL a business get’s this right.”
Business owners depend on CIA to provide advice to protect their business and their lifestyle. With this in mind, it’s our duty to help business owners understand the issues.
