Claims scrutiny by insurers toughens: solid documentation is critical
Published 27 January 2021
As insurance becomes tougher to obtain generally, insurers are requiring increasing amounts of information about claims. Having this information to hand relies on good housekeeping – as does minimising the risks in the first place.
Ultimately, it’s important for businesses to do their housekeeping, and have the right things in place so if they need to make a claim it’s as straightforward as possible:
financial records – are they up-to-date and clear?
sums insured – are they right and reflect the value of risk?
risk management – have you done everything an insurer has asked, and can you prove it?
