How business expenses insurance can benefit your business

Business expenses insurance from NobleOak is an affordable insurance product that gives peace of mind to you and your employees. It will help ensure that your business continues running even if you are too ill or injured to work. If you cannot work because of illness or injury, your NobleOak insurance will kick in and provide you with the following:

  • Reimbursement of all fixed ongoing business costs.
  • The amount of the business costs NobleOak will cover is determined when you take out the policy and choose the cover amount. You can cover up to $25,000 per month.

What does it cover?

NobleOak has created an affordable and inclusive business expenses policy to make it easy to protect your business if you’re not there. The policy includes the following features:

  • A total disablement benefit. This is a monthly benefit paid out if you become totally disabled and allows you to replace part of your income. The benefit will be paid if you are injured accidentally or if you become ill, but the benefit will only be paid for one illness or one injury.
  • Partial disablement benefit. This benefit pays out if you are partially disabled but are able to return to work for at least 14 consecutive days after your injury and perform at least one, but not all, of your normal duties. The benefit will be paid if your income after your disablement is less than the amount you were earning before.
  • Premium waivers. If you make a successful claim and are being paid benefits under your business expenses insurance, you are not required to pay the premiums for the period of the claim.
  • Eligible business expenses. Your NobleOak business expenses insurance will pay for the following fixed expenses, and any which have been specifically approved: premises expenses such as cleaning, insurance, loan interest, loan fees or property taxes; services expenses such as power, phone, fax, Internet and water; equipment expenses such as motor vehicle depreciation, vehicle leasing or insurance, registration or repairs and maintenance; personnel expenses such as salaries, payroll tax and superannuation; plus any other expenses such as accounting fees, bank fees, auditing fees, professional memberships and ongoing advertising costs.
  • Tax deductible premiums. In some cases, the premiums for your NobleOak business expenses insurance will be tax deductible as the premiums themselves are a business expense.

Who is eligible for cover?
