Oil Prices

The world has become a strange place on many fronts in the past few years!

The swing to right wind nationalist policies by many western democracies has changed to face of the “free world” with incredibily silly statements and utterances from people who should know better.

Break away policies from internationally recognised good practice.i.e. better together  now changed to Dog in a manger is good !!!!

A world pandemic is being used by some powers to “Blame Foreigners” How stupid can one get ??

International agreements on Oil Pricing being torn up and open commercial warfare between major producers !!!

Common sense seems to have been abandoned across the globe !

Well, enjoy the reduced oil prices and Blame Global warming ..!!!

INSURANCE A serious TIP

14th January 2020

Theft from Safe and Premises – no cover provided

I am grateful to colleagues in the industry for periodically prompting me to remind the retail community of standard Policy Exclusions as I am on this occasion.

Safe and/or Strong Room keys must be removed from your premises at night when the shop is closed. Theft from a safe/strong room is excluded if the keys have been used to gain access.

Remember also to change your alarm code and key-pad door locks when any staff member leaves your employment as theft/burglary is only covered where there has been forcible entry.

Always remember - call us to discuss any/every incident. We will advise and guide you.

Insurance ..Enough ! Too Much ??

[ By kind permission of Gerry Monks ]

Is there anything that I can do to prevent my premium from increasing?
There are many actions with little or no cost that can be done.

10th December 2019

I want to thank a good friend and someone who is professionally qualified to address this topic – Adrian Power-Kelly of Power Kelly & Co, Chartered Valuation Surveyors.

ARE YOU INSURED FOR THE RIGHT AMOUNT?

Is your house or business premises properly insured? We all know the necessity of having insurance to cover the unexpected event, but the question is are you insured for the right amount? Getting it wrong can really cost you!

Every insurance policy includes an Average Clause. This provides that if you under insure then you will only receive a proportionate payment in the event of any claim. Under insure by 50% and even a €10,000 claim will give you a €5,000 payout and leave you short by €5,000. Similarly over insuring won’t give you a larger payout.

Many people confuse the Market Value sales price of a property with its rebuild cost – this is a common mistake. For example a commercial premises of 100 sq. m. (1100 sq. ft.) might sell for €400,000 but only have a rebuild cost of €250,000 – the opposite can also be true. Getting proper advice from a property professional about the correct valuation can make sure you pay the correct premium but more importantly make sure you don’t get left high and dry for €10,000’s in the event of being under insured.

Insurance Premiums ??

DON’T FAIL TO REPORT TO INSURERS

How to deal with someone claiming from you

In most cases where a claim against you is brought to your attention it is done so formally through a letter from solicitor representing the claimant. In certain cases, (but seldom), you might have a complaint from someone which might suggest that a formal claim could follow.

Never attempt to deal with a formal claim until you have reported the matter to your Insurer as to do so could easily prejudice their subsequent chance of a defense and could lead to them refusing to deal with a claim. Always call your Insurer to discuss and agree the appropriate response.

In the case where someone approaches you informally, please remember it costs nothing to be a nice person and being overly-defensive or angry simply will not help.

Please read the sentence below and put it to use.

Always remember - call us to discuss any/every incident. We will advise and guide you.

Changing Behaviour

The addition of taxes will not change the behaviour of the general public in any great numbers.

What needs to happen is direct action by the organs of the state in relation to its own use of transport and power

Schedule all public transport by 2025 to be electric driven in cities including trains

Switch off unnecessary power such as lighting at night from midnight all across the country

Late night usage of power to be limited to emergency services such as hospitals and nursing homes and essential services .

Cease the school bus programme for other than special needs children . Encourgae cycling or walking no matter what the distance ….It was an essential part of growing up in times past and there was very little obesity as a result (two problems dealt with in one!)

Government driven solar energy on all public buildings ..Museums, Government offices, Sate run bodies to have solar power units …hospitals, etc etc

Multiple Park and ride facilities throughout the country for all major towns and cities

nominal transfer charges from car to town and return

Tax all foreign holidays outward bound with a levy to assist green projects only

More to follow
