Yes – in the UK, building and contents insurance is an allowable expense, which means you can deduct this cost from your taxable profit.
When working out how much cover you need, it's worth calculating how much it would be to cover the costs associated with various claims and choose the level of insurance that would cover this.
The associated costs will be different for various claims and could include legal fees, compensation, repairing or replacing items and rebuilding property, which also includes builders' fees, materials, surveryors' fees and debris removal.
Keep in mind that if you also run an online retailing business alongside your shop, you may need extra cover. To learn more, have a look at our online retailer cover.

Yes, we also cover online retailers. There's no need to select multiple business activities when building a quote – when selecting your shop type in our quote builder, you'll also be covered to sell things online. However, we're unable to cover shops that sell items in the US and Canada.
Paying for your insurance by monthly subscription can have a few advantages for your business. Here are just a few:
- Paying in smaller increments as opposed to a large annual fee can help you manage cash flow
- You're not locked-in to an annual contract, which means you can adapt or cancel your cover at any time for no extra cost
- It gives you the flexibility to change your cover from one month to the next, which comes in handy if you are a new business
- You only pay for what you need – some annual contracts will bundle cover together, but our monthly subscription lets you select the covers that are applicable to your business so you're never over or under insured.
