Shop insurance – What is covered?

Shop insurance is a tailored package providing the various components required to protect a retailers business. Cover extends from legal liability exposures such as public and employers liability to physical losses such as fire, theft or flood, to buildings, contents, stock, money and associated loss of profits. Other extensions to cover include goods-in-transit, damage to shop front or glass and fidelity cover (theft by employees)

Is Shop Insurance compulsory?

Most retail businesses will need to employ either full or part-time staff and will be required by law to purchase employers liability insurance. Failure to arrange this cover, which provides indemnity for compensation claims received for injury to members of your workforce in the course of their employment, can result in fines of up to £2,500 per day.

Unless you own a van requiring motor insurance, no other elements of insurance for your shop are compulsory, however without protection for loss or damage to stock, or potential injury claims for slips or trips from customers or members of the public (public liability), you will be leaving your business financially exposed.

In the same way as retailers offer a variety of products, different insurers will provide different levels of cover and premiums.

How much does it cost to insure a Shop?

Whilst retailers insurance packages start from as little as £150 (plus insurance premium tax), each policy is individually tailored to your specific business requirements. 

Typically insurer premiums will be impacted by: 

• Location of the shop (including postal code)
• Type of business and goods being sold
• Sums insured (contents, stock etc.)
• Trading experience and previous claims history
• Sections of cover required

Should I buy cheap Shop Insurance?

As with the items your business retails, quality will play a part in the cost of your policy. It is important to compare cover levels, sums insured and any insurer requirements, such as security or alarm requirements, to ensure that the cover is suitable for your individual needs. 

That is not to say that the most expensive policy will be the best either! – Utilise the skills and advice of a specialist insurance advisor such as Insync, they will help you find the right level of cover at the right price.

Shop Cover Claims Example

A mini-supermarket suffered a fire following an electrical fault in an overloaded circuit board. The entire shop was severely smoke damaged and all stock was lost.

Total claim for replacement contents, fixtures and fittings, stock and business interruption, which covered fixed costs and expenses and loss of profits whilst the business recovered from the loss, totalled in excess of £50k.
