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.
BrightPayUK thanks for a great demo today. Enjoyed it so much we are now using your software. Your helpdesk were excellent with a few minor queries I had when setting up. Really looking forward to using your software properly. Also your CIS assistant software has saved me and my clients a lot of time.
For anyone thinking about this, we are trying the software for the first time, and have run our first auto enrolment. We love it! And for any hiccups the support staff have been great too.
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.

HMRC have announced that the Penalties and Appeals service, for The Construction Industry Scheme, has now gone live.
Details of how to access the service can be found at https://www.gov.uk/what-you-must-do-as-a-cis-contractor/file-your-monthly-returns under the heading, "If you disagree with a penalty".
The scale of penalties for late CIS returns is shown below.
How late the return is and associated penalty:-
1 day late £100
2 months late £200
6 months late £300 or 5% of the CIS deductions on the return, whichever is higher
12 months late £300 or 5% of the CIS deductions on the return, whichever is higher
For returns later than this, you may be given an additional penalty of up to £3,000 or 100% of the CIS deductions on the return, whichever is higher.
You must still file a return for the months when you made no payments to subcontractors (unless you request for your scheme to be made inactive). This is called a ‘nil notification’.
