Building your shoe shop cover

Public liability insurance is important for all trades, in case someone is injured or killed, or their property damaged because of your business. Simply Business offers between £1 million and £5 million in cover, to protect you against this cost.

If you have employees, contractors, casual workers or temporary staff, you’re required by law to take out employers’ liability insurance. It’ll cover claims from employees who’ve been injured or become seriously ill as a result of working for you.

Another important consideration is any specialist tools or equipment you have – including things like computers. Often, work revolves around these essentials, so our business equipment options will help take care of the day to day risks, letting you get on with the job in hand.

Check the details

  • Make sure you read your policy documents carefully and that you understand any exclusions that may apply
  • If you rent your shop premises from a commercial landlord, check with them to see if you need your own buildings insurance
  • Contents cover and fixtures and fittings cover insure different types of items within your premises, so check what you need
  • Have you thought about front of premises cover, in case your shop exterior is damaged?
  • If you employ people, even in your own home, you’re legally obliged to take out employers’ liability insurance. Not doing this could lead to a heavy fine
