HEY NEW ORLEANS BUSINESS OWNER!
ARE YOU MISSING THE BP BOAT?
The Average BP Business Economic Loss (BEL) Claim as of 4/01/2013 is $217,026
Millions of businesses are unaware that they have a valid claim.
What geographic areas are included in the settlement?
All counties in Alabama and Mississippi, all parishes in Louisiana, and certain counties in Florida and Texas are eligible.
What types of businesses qualify?
Almost all types of businesses qualify: Catering companies, ice cream parlors and coffee shops, restaurant suppliers/vendors, car washes, rescue missions, crisis centers, churches/mosques, taxi cab and limousines companies, photo studios, auto repair shops, tire and battery shops, convenience stores, gas stations, car washes, hardware stores, clothing retailers, marinas, boat tours and charter boats, florists and gift shops, restaurants and fast food, barber shops, hair and nail salons, cigar shops, liquor stores, bars, night clubs, laundromats, dry cleaners, grocery stores, travel agencies, RV parks, hotels, motels, bed & breakfasts, spas, country clubs and the list goes on and on.
All businesses qualify, unless specifically excluded from the settlement.
Do I have to prove that the oil spill caused decline in my business?
Claimants are no longer required to prove that the oil spill directly impacted their business. However, business claimants are required to provide their 2007 through 2011 monthly income statements. This is 60 months of financial revenue statements (also called Profit & Loss or P&L statements). Business claimants are also required to provide their 2007 through 2011 federal tax returns with all schedules. Yes, this is a lot of financial documentation needed to process a claim but don't you think it will be worth it? The average BEL is over $200,000
