Shop Insurance FAQs

Why do I need shop insurance?

Your shop can be the forefront of your business so making sure it’s protected properly can be a crucial part of always keeping your business going.

Shop insurance can cover the buildings, including shop fronts, and contents in case anything unexpected may happen.

We also understand that very shop and business is different, so our team will tailor a policy around your specific needs. They will make sure that you are covered for the right amount. This will help you avoid paying for cover you don’t need, or being under-insured which can be disasterous when it matters most.

Is shop insurance a legal requirement?

Shop insurance is not a legal requirement, although there are aspects of your business that is required to have insurance.

For example, if you have any employees, even just one, then you need to have employers liability in place. This covers you if one of your employees injure themselves at work or you have a dispute. However there is other insurance that although isn’t required by law, many businesses opt to have. For example many businesses take out public liability in case they are sued for injury or damage.
