Where pay periods cross over 2 tax year versions of BrightPay, we would like to bring to your attention a scenario where BrightPay will unfortunately be unable to produce a CJRS Claim Report and in turn automatically ascertain reclaimable amounts for you.
This is due to the nature of how BrightPay is programmed, in that 21-22 BrightPay will install as a separate program to 20-21 BrightPay.
The pay data for this pay period will be processed in 21-22 BrightPay. As the pay period however crosses 2 calendar months, 2 claims are required to reclaim the furlough pay – a March claim to cover the dates falling in March and an April claim for the dates falling in April.
In this instance, users will thus be required to manually calculate the reclaimable March furlough pay element and process in the normal manner through HMRC's claim portal.
