FIRE, PERILS, STORM, ACCIDENTAL DAMAGE
Natural disasters can strike at any time, costing your business thousands or forcing permanent closure. While we can’t control the Australian climate, this Business Insurance policy is designed to alleviate this risk. It can help cover the cost of repairing or replacing your tangible assets, including your property (owned or tenanted), equipment, inventory, and furniture, in the event of a fire, flood, storm or similar.
Business interruption coverage ensures that your operations can continue despite disruptions or unforeseen tragedies. This policy covers lost income and manages ongoing expenses, including rent and payroll. Furthermore, it serves as a financial safety net, offering support if you require temporary relocation or are finding a new permanent location for your business.
THEFT, GLASS, MONEY
Theft, Glass and Money Insurance can help cover the financial losses of a physical robbery, including repair costs to building windows, glass cabinets, shelving or signs. This policy also safeguards your assets and cash flow in the event of internal or external criminal activities, ensuring that your stock, equipment and money are covered if stolen.
PUBLIC & PRODUCT LIABILITY
Public and Product Liability coverage offers financial protection for your business against expensive claims made by third parties. These claims typically arise when a customer alleges that they experienced a significant personal injury or damage to their property due to your on-site business operations or product.
PROPERTY IN TRANSIT
Property in Transit insurance is essential to protect your valuable cargo if your business relies on shipping goods and a steady inventory flow. This policy can help cover damaged or lost products and equipment due to natural disasters such as flooded roads, hailstorms, or fires.
Even the best-kept machinery can experience occasional malfunctions. Ensure minimal disruption to your daily operations with Machinery Breakdown coverage, designed to assist in handling on-site mechanical failures, such as air-conditioning units and refrigeration systems.
ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT BREAKDOWN
In today’s tech-driven world, almost every business depends on technology. This coverage comes to the rescue for potential breakdowns of electronic equipment on your premises, from computers and photocopiers to point-of-sale systems, ensuring your business stays up and running.
Portable tools are essential in every industry, whether using laptops or screwdrivers to get the job done. General Property coverage protects your general property (portable contents) from loss or damage, whether on or off your premises.
TAX AUDIT COVERAGE
Tax Audit coverage provides essential financial protection and peace of mind to individuals and businesses by covering the costs associated with tax audits. In the event of an audit by tax authorities, this coverage can handle legal expenses, accounting services, and other related fees, ensuring you can navigate the audit process without extra financial burden or stress.
Employee dishonesty is when an employee engages in deceitful or fraudulent actions within their workplace. These actions include theft, embezzlement, forgery, or other financial misconduct. Employee dishonesty coverage helps protect businesses from financial losses resulting from the fraudulent activities of their employees.

What if I run a business from home?
In today’s modern business landscape, more Australians are discovering the benefits of working from the comfort of their own homes. However, while a home-based business may be convenient for most, you must consider a crucial element to a successful venture: Business Insurance.
Most standard home insurance policies in Australia do not cover business-related activities. Suppose your business involves clients coming to your home or specialised work equipment. In that case, it’s best to inform your insurer and purchase additional coverage, such as Public and Product Liability. Failing to disclose your business activities or having inadequate coverage could lead to issues if you need to make a claim.
Knightsbridge can help you navigate the complex world of insurance to guarantee peace of mind for you and your business. From small startups to larger, growing enterprises, you can depend on us to provide comprehensive coverage and highly tailored solutions.
What’s the difference between Public Liability and Professional Indemnity Insurance?
Public Liability insurance provides coverage when your business is responsible for property damage or injuries to third parties, and you are liable for the associated expenses. For example, if a customer injures themselves by falling over in your store, your Public Liability Insurance would cover the medical expenses and potential legal costs if they sue your business.
It is vital if your business interacts with the public, such as retail stores, restaurants, or contractors/trades working at client sites.
Professional Indemnity insurance safeguards you when a client alleges they have suffered financial loss or damage due to errors, omissions, or negligence in your professional work or advice. For instance, if you’re a financial advisor and your client claims that your investment advice led to substantial financial losses, your Professional Indemnity Insurance would cover legal expenses and potential compensation to the client.
It is crucial for accountants, lawyers, consultants, doctors, and other professional service providers whose expertise directly impacts their clients’ financial or legal well-being.
