By far, the majority of the effort that went into creating BrightPay was in the design of the user interface. BrightPay gives visual priority to the most common payroll tasks, and shows or hides various features only as they become relevant. When payroll is straightforward, BrightPay keeps it simple. When payroll gets complicated, BrightPay makes it easy.
BrightPay works the way you want. It's incredibly flexible, letting you do what you need to do to run your payroll, no matter what type of employer you are or what your situtation is. There are no unecessary limitations or pointless restrictions on what you can do. It has proven to be a breath of fresh air for many customers who have switched from competing products.
When implementing RTI support in BrightPay, we had two main goals: simplicity and flexibility. We have worked hard so you don't have to, and believe we have the best RTI implementation on the market. But don't take our word for it - try it yourself!
Automatic Enrolment functionality has been elegantly integrated into BrightPay. Setting up your pension scheme, enrolling employees, issuing communication, making contributions and viewing reports – it's all seamless and simple.
BrightPay has achieved HMRC recognition for 2014/15 and has passed through our own vigorous internal testing regime. We have been developing payroll software for the past 20 years and you can benefit from all our hard work and experience.
I have been using BrightPay payroll for two years now in my payroll bureau. I find that it has all of the functions that other, more expensive, programmes have and a few more innovative and very useful functions. The programme works perfectly with RTI and in my 30 years of experience in preparing payrolls I find thatBrightPay is the best product that I have used. The support system is efficient and friendly and always willing to help. I would thoroughly recommend BrightPay to any business.

I just wanted to send a quick note to say how impressed I am with the BrightPay payroll software. I am a programmer (as my real job) and use BrightPay in my additional role as general admin/dogsbody for my husband and brother-in-law's small family wine business.
We've only been paying anyone since April - I tried a couple of other payroll systems first and found them clumsy, confusing and generally painful to use. Once I discovered BrightPay I suddenly stopped dreading the weekly payroll and wondering how on earth I would ever know if HMRC got our submission!
Thank you very much. Your level of customer service is outstanding and though I am a believer, unbelievable for a programmer. I have been using software since 1990 and must confess that this high level of professional, courteous and timely support is not very common. Please feel free to use my comments in your promotions or whatever. I stand by them because it's the truth.

HMRC have this week published information to help employers understand how to go about informing HMRC of errors on RTI returns for the tax year 2013/14. This includes a new flowchart (correcting 2013-14 PAYE submissions after 5 April 2014 (PDF 35K) ) which provides employers with a step-by-step guide to follow should any of the following scenarios arise after the 5th April 2014:
The employer wishes to correct amounts already sent on a Full Payment Submission:
· up to and including 19 April 2014 employers can make corrections by sending an Additional FPS for 2013-14. Employers can send more than one FPS to make corrections up to that date if needed. Employers are not required to send another Employer Payment Summary unless corrections are also needed to this.
· after 19 April 2014, employers must make any corrections to a 2013-14 FPS on an Earlier Year Update (EYU). Employers can send an EYU even if they haven't made a final FPS submission. If further changes are needed, employers can correct an EYU by sending HMRC another EYU with the corrected information.
The employer wishes to correct figures already submitted on an Employer Payment Summary (e.g. for the recovery of statutory payments):
· Employers can make corrections to an Employer EPS by sending another EPS to report the correct total year-to-date figures for all recovered payments within that tax year. Employers have up to six years from when they sent in their original EPS to do this.
Full guidance on the above can be found on HMRC’s website at correcting payroll errors - current year
