Open Cover was introduced by a predecessor of IRS over 50 years ago.
The principle is simple and straightforward, to provide automatic cover on Assets and Liabilities subject to an appointment, from the instant you are appointed. Our Open Cover product satisfies this requirement by offering up to 30 days automatic cover on a diverse range of trades.
Our service is tailored to your individual requirements and where you need a bespoke solution, we are here to assist you.

We can review and report on the adequacy of a company’s existing insurance programme, which can be required for bank reporting purposes. We will advise on whether the assets are adequately protected by insurance and we will highlight cost savings we could make by restructuring their existing insurance programme.
Where cover is required prior to a formal liquidation or administration taking place, we can arrange cover for this hiatus period to protect the assets prior to any formal appointment.
Once a formal insolvency appointment has occurred and Open Cover is in place, we will arrange for cancellation of the pre-appointment insurances and obtain any available refunds. IRS will also take over the handling of pre-appointment claims matters.
There are occasions when it may be advisable to keep Pre-Appointment insurances in place. They may be of a specialist nature or are fully paid and non-refundable upon cancellation. We will undertake a thorough review and we will only recommend this course of action where the client would benefit from the protection provided.
We greatly appreciate the professional, practical and commercial approach of Insolvency Risk Services in what can be difficult circumstances. Their approach allows pragmatic solutions to difficult problems providing vision, clarity and confidence.
