The Pandemic and Business Loss Claims – Exploring the pandemic’s far reaching impact on all Canadian business

Presented by Gary Phelps, CPA, CMA, CFF, CFE and Adam Gianotti, CPA, CGA, CFF

The pandemic has had a far reaching impact on all Canadian business. Shutdowns and changes in the way we work and spend our time have increased revenues and savings for some while, unfortunately, reduced revenues and work available for others. We will provide insights and data to describe who has been materially impacted.

At issue is the extent to which businesses have coverages for losses they have incurred due to reduced revenues and/or shutdowns caused by the pandemic. The ability to recover business losses through insurance will depend upon the wording and intent of coverage purchased and is a highly disputed topic. We will discuss some of the issues – keep in mind we are not lawyers.

Business loss claims, whether insured or the subject of third party liability claims are often complex to quantify. We rely on sales trends over time, before a loss, to estimate future sales had a loss not occurred. We will soon begin a time period when historical sales during the pandemic time frame (soon to be over one year in length) may not be reasonable to consider as the basis for future sales – Relying on historic sales may understate or overstate a future claim. We will discuss some of the complexities that we will soon have when calculating and resolving business loss claims.

Environmental Forensics – Solving the Who, What, Where, When and How of Petroleum-Related Claims

Presented by Dr. Francine Kelly-Hooper, Ph.D.

Dealing with a highway accident claim? Fuel oil loss? Another claim involving petroleum hydrocarbon (PHC) contamination? We’ll cover some case studies on specialized tools that you can use to resolve PHC contamination claims and save costs. Some questions we will address include:

  • What is the type of PHC contaminant? Did it come from my Insured’s release or from somewhere else?
  • Is this a fresh or historical PHC release?
  • Could my sample results be showing asphalt instead of the PHC that was spilled? What does this mean for cleanup?
