Virtual Offices in the Magazines

"Is your home office adequately insured?", Grace Weinstein, Investors Business Daily, June 4, 1996. 
At least 12 million Americans operate full-time home-based businesses and millions more moonlight from home. Homeowner's insurance policies vary but commonly on site equipment is covered to $2500, equipment away from home is covered to $250, and the definition of "incidental" businesses that some homeowner's policies do cover varies widely. Furthermore, you may be on your own if a co-worker or client is injured in your home office or you suffer lost income or assets from home emergencies (fire, water damage e.g., from flood or water heater) since homeowner's policies do not cover business-related liability. The Insurance Information Institute offers a free booklet called "Insuring Your Home Business," 110 William St., New York, N.Y. 10038. Commercial policies tend to be overkill; now some insurers like CAN, RLI, IBA write specialty policies for this growing niche and the Insurance Services Office in New York is developing a standard form for home-based businesses.
