Public liability insurance is often a very important cover for off-licence shops, in case someone is injured 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.
With business premises insurance, you can insure your off licence shop buildings against damage from unexpected crises, such as fire and flood. If you rent your business space, you’re unlikely to need buildings insurance – but contact your commercial landlord to make sure.
The average insurance claim for off licences is £2,405 – could you afford this if the worst happened? (Average claim being £2,405. Based on data from 21 November 2018 - 20 November 2019, for comparison only. Cancellation charges may apply, please refer to our full terms & conditions.)
Your licence is a valuable thing, and you can lose it for many reasons – even in situations where you weren’t at fault. Whether it’s for health and safety reasons, selling alcohol to minors, or crime issues around your premises, it’s worth considering loss of licence cover, just in case yours is removed.

Off licences often keep large amounts of valuable stock on the premises, so it’s sensible to insure it separately from your contents. The value of stock can run to thousands or tens of thousands of pounds, so if it was damaged, destroyed or stolen, your shop’s stock cover would help to cover the cost price (not the resale value) of your stock.
