About IUA Interruption Insurance

Quality cover from the interruption experts

IUA Interruption Insurance is a standalone cover that sits alongside other business insurance, such as business packages and industrial special risks.

It protects the turnover of the business from a downturn due to interruption of trade, resulting from a range of insurable events. This means your client can recover and get back to the same financial position they were in before the event happened – protecting their business and livelihood. IUA’s Interruption Insurance can cover the loss of any sales that a business would have made whilst out of action – as well as various other costs that may be incurred in reopening the doors of a business after a difficult period.

Policy features and benefits

With IUA Business Interruption Insurance, your clients will enjoy:

Business interruption insurance with extra benefits

Insured Gross Profit

We calculate the payment your client will receive by using the agreed rate of Insured Gross Profit stated in the Policy Schedule, so your client knows what they can expect from the outset. This calculation is set out in our Worksheet .

Unlike some other interruption insurance products, IUA’s product doesn’t apply an average clause to under insurance. Instead, your client has the option of selecting their own limit without attracting a penalty.
