BP Business Claims
BP Business Claims and The BP Settlement
The BP Settlement has begun. The DeepWater Horizon Settlement has a variety of mechanisms in place for a business to prove it has a legitimate claim under the terms of the BP Settlement.
There is the V Test, the modified V Test, and a myriad of others. Some of these tests will change formulas, depending upon what zone you are in and what type of business you are in.
This is a complex group of calculations, that depend highly upon your businesses location, and that of your customer base. Documentation is key, and the presentment of it paramount.
Creating a baseline of at least 3 consecutive months after the spill in 2010 compared with 2009, and or 2008, and 2007 is also essential.
Business claims also depend highly upon what zone you are in, if you are in a zone A location causation is automatically assumed. Your multipliers can be as high as 3.5 your 2010 losses.
If your in zone B, C, or D your multipliers change dramatically, and you will need to jump through some more hoops. Again, who your business caters to will come very much into play, those that rely heavily upon tourism will reap the biggest rewards.
Under the New Leadership at The DeepWater Horizon Settlement, they are trying very hard to treat all claims fairly, this is a very complex process.
