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 use the free version in a very small setup with a single employee in a church. The way BrightPay works helps me not only with themechanics of payroll and tax but also understanding the requirements
It's just better and more simple to use than many of the other software packages on the market. I'm really impressed. It's a pleasure to do the payroll!
Very easy to use, does everything I need and costs nothing for my small business! Can't ask for anything more :) keep up the excellent work.
Hmrc have recently provided employers with information about late/non filing PAYE penalties, inaccurate reports and how to avoid penalties in the future.
Penalties are applied when one or more of the following occur:
- The full payment submission (FPS) was late
- The expected number of FPSs are not sent for any given period
- An EPS (Employer Payment Summary) is not sent when you did not pay any employees in any given pay period
HMRC will not charge a penalty if:
- The FPS is late but all reported payments on the FPS are within 3 days of the employee’s payday
- A new employer sends their first FPS within 30 days of paying an employee
- It is the first failure in the tax year to send a report on time (this does not apply to employers who register with HMRC as an annual scheme or have fewer than 50 employees for the tax year 2014 to 2015)
HOW MUCH WILL BE CHARGED FOR LATE FILING?
Number of employees - Monthly penalty
1 to 9 - £100
10 to 49 - £200
50 to 249 - £300
250 or more - £400
If an employer is over 3 months late they wil charged and additional penalty of 5% of the tax and NI Insurance that they should have reported.
Also be aware that if there is more than one PAYE scheme penalties can be charged on each!
