Unfortunately, it is possible for money to be stolen or go missing. And while this may not amount to millions, losing a couple of thousand could be a serious inconvenience in the running of your business. Take the time to consider the places where cash can be held and you will find numerous opportunities for it to be lost or stolen.
For instance, you may well have cash on the premises, be it in a till, a locked box or a safe. You could be on your way to the bank and it could be stolen from your person or your vehicle. You may have taken the money home with you with the intention of banking it the next morning and you could be burgled. It could even be stolen from the night safe at the bank - the sort of place you'd think would be safe.
You'll be pleased to hear then, that it is possible to insure yourself against such losses through Direct Line for Business Insurance.
