If buildings, operating equipment and/or stocks get destroyed or damaged or are lost due to insured property damage, property insurance protects companies against the financial consequences.
Besides the protection of physical items, financial ramifications and production outage due to property damage should not be ignored either, especially since they frequently constitute existential threats to the company. For example, during production outage no more profit is earned, but the fixed costs continue to be incurred so that many companies have to fall back on reserves to ensure liquidity or are forced to take on additional loans.
With loss of income insurance, companies can hedge against the consequences of an outage. If operations are interrupted due to insured property damage then loss of income replaces running costs as well as lost profits, and in particular salaries, provisions and rent.
