Choosing to 'verify online' will prompt BrightPay to create a Subcontractor Verification Request, including any subcontractors you wish to verify. This Verification Request can be sent directly to HMRC, after which BrightPay can subsequently update the subcontractors with the response received back from HMRC.

BrightPay also facilitates the manual entry of verification details:





However, please note, from April 2017 HMRC will no longer accept requests for subcontractor verifications by telephone – all such requests must be done online.
