Fitzpatrick & Co Insurance Brokers – RUN OFF COVER

I’ve closed my business; do I still need insurance cover?

Most Public & Products liability policies only provide cover against liability for damage to property or injury to person where the occurrence (damage/injury) happens during the currency of the policy.  Therefore, any damage/injury that occurs after your policy expires may not be insured, unless you have taken out a replacement policy or run off cover.

If you are a sole trader, partnership or a registered company and you cease to trade you may need to maintain liability cover for goods or services that you provided in the past against any claim that may arise in the future. This cover is called Run Off cover and is available to ensure protection against future liabilities even though the business has ceased trading.

We strongly recommend that you arrange Run Off Cover, especially if you’re a sole trader or partnership or the company continues to exist and has ongoing net assets.  The last thing you want in your retirement or when no longer working for yourself is a large bill that a liability policy would have responded to if an incident has occurred.

Please contact Fitzpatrick & Co to discuss your situation and to arrange a competitive quote to ensure continued protection against unexpected liabilities.

Fitzpatrick Insurance Brokers – Tools of the Trade

I have a liability policy, does this cover my Tools.  No!

Tools of Trade cover is a separate policy that provides in most policies Australia Wide cover for all your Tools.  Insurers don’t need an individual list of items but will need a value for them, and some may require you to specify items if they are over a certain value, around $2500 depending on the value of the item.

If any of your Tools got stolen can your business still run?  Or if your entire toolbox was stolen how much would it cost you to replace all of them items in it, including many of the items that you have built up over many years.  Tools of Trade cover can provide cover for these items and not leave you out of pocket or unable to work without these items.

It is important to check your policy on a Tools of Trade policy as sometimes the cover can be limited by either location, or theft exclusions.  For example if a Tool was stolen from a non locked vehicle, toolbox, shed or back of a ute, it may not be covered depending on the insurer.

Can you afford to run your business without your tools?  Or will the small cost of Tools of Trade insurance provide adequate protection to keep you running in a frustrating time when your tools have been stolen.

For assistance with any of your insurance needs please contact Mick Le Grand, Director of Programs at Fitzpatrick & Co. on 03 8544 1634 or email mickl@fitzpatrick.com.au.

Importance of Income Protection

We all know that accidents and serious illnesses can happen. If something unexpected does happen, you want to protect what’s important.  Having your income protection cover in place gives you the financial freedom when you need it most.

Income Protection

Income protection is designed to help keep your life on track while you can’t work due to sickness or injury.  It provides you with a regular income for a nominated period of time. Having this monthly payment allows your household to keep running and takes the financial pressure off you, so you can focus on your recovery.

Helping Warren with his recovery and ensuring that his business continues to run

Warren owns and runs an Arborist business. Warren had put in place his income protection and business expense policy in May 2017.

On a Saturday afternoon in June, whilst doing some simple home renovations, Warren fell off his ladder and landed on his shoulder.  He had to have immediate surgery on his shoulder and was unable to work in the short term. As an arborist and a business owner, it means he cannot do a number of his main duties.

Warren made a claim under his income protection and business expense policy which will pay his loss of income whilst he is in recovery.  Warren is aware his recovery may take up to 6 months, but he can continue to focus on his rehabilitation, knowing that his household and business can keep running.

There are many forms of income protection and life insurance policies that can be taken out.  From covering just business expenses, trauma cover or covering your partner, even if they are not working but are still earning an income from you to your normal income protection and life insurance policies.

To find out more or to tailor the right policy for your best interests please contact Fitzpatrick & Co. Insurance Brokers and they will ensure that should an incident occur, money and income will not be a problem for you.
