Suitable business insurance for bakeries and bakers*

A trip to the bakery is a special treat for some people – especially kids eyeing off a vanilla slice or chocolate éclair. For others, such as tradies grabbing a pie and coke at lunch it’s part of a ritual, while for some customers – perhaps mum or dad grabbing the daily bread – it can be a bit of a chore.

Similarly, while some bakers and sole proprietor bakery owners view their business insurance as a key part of their asset protection strategy other see insurance as a “necessary evil” – but they know it can be invaluable when they need to claim.

What is the correct “Situation Address” to list on my business policy?*

The Situation Address must be the address of either the physical risk being covered (like a property) or, in the case of Liability policies, the physical address for the normal place (or places) of business.

If you have multiple business locations, e.g., a number of branches, shops, factories or depots, then ALL location addresses must be shown on the schedule and advised to the insurers. And the multiple location addresses then needs to be kept up to date with the insurers at all times, in the event of any changes.

Insurers will not accept a Post Office box as a “normal place of business”, because you cannot do business from a PO Box.

A PO Box is fine for a mailing address, but cannot be used as the address of the “Situation” on any policy.

For example, Public Liability policies usually operate “at and from” an address, which should be the normal place of business for a business policy.

If the business was run from home, for example, then the home address would be shown as the normal place of business. The “at and from” nature of the cover would then cover any transitory business conducted away from the home address (or away from a real business address, as the case may be).

If the business was run from home but was selling through stands or kiosks at markets or shopping centres then that would have to be disclosed to the insurer, as it affects the risk.
