Restaurant Business Interruption Insurance
You should fully insure your loss of gross profit for 12 months, so that in the event of a serious loss at your Restaurant you will have time to get back on your feet. Your Restaurant Insurers will then pay any shortfall in your gross profit, a year after the incident date. Insurers will also pay reasonable increased working costs.

Beware that some Restaurant Insurance policies only cover increased cost of working- ie just the increase in cost you incur, if you are shut for 2 months who will pay all your normal bills??
