Why do I need shop insurance?

A shop insurance policy covers you against legal liabilities and risks you face as a retailer:

  • Public liability insurance covers your legal liability to pay damages awarded to members of the public for injury, illness, disease, or damage to their property, sustained as a result of your negligence.
  • Employers' liability insurance covers your legal liability to pay damages awarded to an employee for an injury, illness or disease which has resulted from working for you.

Here are the key benefits:

  • Employers' liability insurance – essential cover for retailers
  • Public liability insurance – up to £5 million cover
  • Business interruption insurance cover included
  • Shop buildings insurance optional cover available
  • Stock and contents insurance – seasonal stock cover increases for goods required during busy times of year
  • Money cover included as standard
  • Additional cover available for frozen goods, legal expenses, goods in transit
What types of shops do you cover?

Our shop insurance covers a wide range of retail establishments, including:

  • coffee shops

What is business interruption insurance?

Business interruption insurance covers your retail business against losses incurred following a loss which is covered by your shop insurance.

For example, if you were unable to trade because of a major fire at your premises, business interruption insurance could pay for your lost earnings and costs during the period of interruption.

What is employee dishonesty cover?

This cover protects your business against losses caused by theft, fraud or dishonesty committed by your employees.
