Construction costs have increased significantly since the carbon tax was introduced, with additional expenses filtering through the building sector from top to bottom. Soft economic conditions have also affected small construction companies, with many owners under-insuring their business against potential losses. A lot of businesses are under-insured, with few owners understanding the ramifications until they make a claim.
For many people it’s a bold move to begin a small business and it takes self-motivation, a degree of confidence, and sometimes nerves of steel. Business owners have to understand the workings of their business from the bottom up, leaving no stone unturned in the search for profitability. Some areas of your business may not be getting the attention they deserve, and business insurance may be one such area.
