“I felt my overall experience with Aviva auto-enrolment was liberating – it was taken out of my hands and done for me”

Liz Jackson
The York Priory B&B

Video transcript

Hi, I’m Liz Jackson and I’m the third generation of Jackson to run and own the York Priory

The very first time I heard about auto-enrolment was when a letter dropped on my doormat with ‘auto-enrolment’ written on it and ‘this is not a circular’

*Statistic* - Around 800,000 businesses are due to stage in 2017/18.

Source – The Pensions Regulator

I was filled with horror and I though oh dear oh dear, I have to tackle all of this, but as I was in the middle of my office move, I decided to put it into my inbox to deal with later

*Statistic* - Over 40% of UK businesses admit to leaving auto-enrolment to the last minute and over 10% miss their staging date completely.

Source – Aviva staging date tracker Oct 2016

So I looked straight on to Google, Aviva were there on the list, and I thought ‘great, that’s who I’m going to go for – a familiar company’

From start to finish I felt (the process) was very, very easy to do. I was very happy with it, by a couple of hours I was auto-enrolled and sorted out

I didn’t have to ask the accountant for help, I didn’t have to ask for any external help from anybody else, I just sorted it out from start to finish on my own

And it was really, really easy, you just fill out everything you need to do – your annual income, your staff wages, it tells you what you need to be paying

And you just complete it right through to the very end of the page and the minute you finish that, you’re all enrolled and sorted out

You receive papers within a few days, and you just take it from there – I’ve just been quite comfortable and happy it’s ticking along nicely in the background for me!

Auto enrolment, it’s important that I know what I’m talking about because my staff hear from friends and acquaintances and they come to me and ask questions l

If there was anyone else who wanted to auto-enrol, just do what I did – if I can do it, anybody can do it, that’s for sure!

In my experience you couldn’t do better than Aviva, so I would definitely recommend Aviva as a company to try

However, there are other options there if they (other businesses) do wish to choose other ones, but Aviva has definitely worked for me and I would definitely recommend them

It empowered me to do it – empower yourself to it!
