Coding Notices

BrightPay includes the ability to retrieve and process employee PAYE coding notices directly from HMRC (P9, PB, P6B, SL1, SL2, PGL1 & PGL2).

BrightPay will also read any Scottish and Welsh tax indicators in P6/P9 notices, as well as the Plan type indicator in SL1 notices. 


Please note: To use this feature, ensure the notice options in your HMRC PAYE dashboard are all set to Yes. Only new coding notices issued after this instruction will be available for download.

  • Click Coding Notices on the menu toolbar

  • Enter your HMRC Sender ID and password, if not already entered

  • Click Check for Notices

Current coding notices will be displayed on screen. 

 

  • Select the employees whose notices you would like to import and click Apply Selected
