Consider insurance for your business

If you’re a business owner or responsible for a business, you may wish to include insurance as a part of your business plan. Protecting your business from damage, interruption and liability potentially enables you to keep operating if something unexpected happens that affects your company. Without it, even a simple incident could potentially close your business down.

We offer a range of insurance cover for occurrences including natural disasters and liability issues, particularly well-suited to small and medium-sized businesses.

Choose the types of cover that suits your business

Business assets

Protects you against loss or damage to buildings, plant, contents, machinery, and stock.

Business interruption

Covers you for loss of income, together with any increased operating costs while your premises are being restored following damage, or in certain circumstances where you have suffered loss of income due to infrastructure damage elsewhere.

Business liability

  • Broadform Liability - covers losses incurred if you, or one of your employees accidentally cause bodily injury to another person, or accidentally damage someone else's property in the course of your business
  • Employer's Liability - covers sums you become liable to pay arising from an employee suffering an injury on the job
  • Statutory Liability - covers you for your liability for fines following accidental breach of certain Acts, for example Resource Management Act 1991

Business vehicle

Covers loss or damage to vehicles associated with your business, caused by accident or theft. It also covers legal liability for accidental damage to someone else's vehicle, property or accidental injury to another person.

Optional Extension: ASB Roadside Rescue can be added to your Business Vehicles insurance to help keep your business moving in case of a break down. And it doesn't matter who's driving your vehicle, because ASB Roadside Rescue covers the vehicle, not the driver.*

Business machinery breakdown

Covers the mechanical or electrical breakdown of your machinery.

Stock deterioration

Covers the deterioration of the contents of refrigeration units after a breakdown.

Other business insurance cover from ASB

If you, a business partner, or key staff member died or fell ill unexpectedly, it could seriously impact your business. Business life and disability insurance could give you added peace of mind by insuring you and the people you rely on.

Flexible payment options

We offer flexible payment options to suit your business’ cash flow, including monthly instalments or a single annual premium.
