Floods are natural disasters which can cause problems and adverse effects on the population.These events will also cause destruction on a large scale. This study aims to identify loss of business property and determine the relationship between the type of business and the level of losses incurred by the trader. The methodology used was a survey using questionnaires. A total of 175 traders in Kuala Krai town was involved in the study and randomly selected. This study used a descriptive analysis of frequency, mean and cross tabulation analysis. The results of the analysis indicate that goods (Mean = 1.56, SD = 0.894) and premises / stalls / kiosks (mean = 1.56, SD = 0531) is a business property with the highest losses or impact. The study also found that the type of business goods (68.0%) is the highest type of business losses compared with business services (32.0%). This situation shows that the business of goods is a type of business experiencing the highest losses due to the destruction of goods and premises / stalls / kiosks. Therefore, an integrated flood management should play an important role in reducing the impact of flooding among traders, especially in terms of preparations to face floods in the future. These efforts will indirectly help to reduce losses among traders in the Bandar Kuala Krai
