In a market economy, starting your own business is risky. The client base will not be built up overnight. It is worth buying insurance protection to reduce the losses due to commercial activities.

Types of business insurance
Even the bravest entrepreneurs, who are not on the first day in business, do not forget to make a straw for themselves. Business insurance is a mandatory process that should not be neglected or put off.
There are several types of risk insurance:
In this case, products, equipment, and premises are insured against operations interruption. For example, you have a fire at your premises. You will not be able to restore the work process quickly. You need to spend time on repairs the purchase of new equipment. Don't forget about employee wages, which no one has canceled, and all the mandatory tax deductions. Insurance can compensate for the costs you incur in such a situation.
Let's say you've opened a business, rented an office, or bought your own space. In addition to the premises, you had to buy the necessary equipment and furniture. If we are talking about big business and the production of goods, you need expensive equipment. You can insure the building itself and its attached buildings and constructions, tangible assets, money in the vault or safe, equipment, computers, phones, fax, printer, scanners, and so on, interior items. Here, all the acquired property can suffer at any time.
If this happens, you will simply receive compensation from the insurance company, equal to the value of the damaged or stolen property. It's worth noting that the amount of insurance is much less than the property's value under the contract.
Business liability insurance to third parties
Under this contract, liabilities to partners will be insured. The insurance company will compensate for penalties, which will be charged due to an insured event.
Insurance against business interruption
A business may not be open 24 hours a day. There may be scheduled days off are weekends and holidays. But what about unplanned days of work that may appear due to force majeure? As a result of the downtime, you will incur losses in the form of lost profits. You will have to spend money on damages, which are unplanned expenses. You must pay your employees' salaries, taxes, and rent. An insurance company will help compensate for those expenses.
It is excellent protection if, due to unforeseen circumstances, you have caused damage to the customer and he has a claim. Let's say you decide to open a beauty salon. When applying a mask to a client, your employee mixed cosmetic substances incorrectly, and the client got redness and burns on her face. Agree, a very unpleasant situation. If the injured client claims the salon, you will have to pay compensation. Except that it won't be you who will pay, but the insurance company will pay up to the sum insured.
Insurance for medium business
Today economic conditions can not be called stable, and this concerns not only Cyprus but all over the world. Every day you can hear about financial crises, which may affect the activity of large companies. But how can representatives of medium-sized businesses stay afloat? This business is in a particular risk zone. Experienced insurance consultants advise buying protection against force majeure circumstances, such as fires, accidents, including utilities, turnover or illness of employees, malfeasance, equipment failure.
