How do I start processing 2021-22 payroll?

 

Every tax year we release brand new software in line with the new budgetary requirements.

Thus, to move your payroll on to a new tax year, simply download the new tax year version of BrightPay at: 

 https://www.brightpay.co.uk/download/


Once downloaded, this will install separately to your previous year’s BrightPay software and you will see a new BrightPay icon appear on your desktop. Your software for the new tax year will contain a seamless import facility to bring across your employee details from the previous tax year. In doing so, your previous year’s information will remain untouched and accessible.


As per our End User Licence Agreement, a new licence is required each tax year to continue with the software after 60 days trial use.

 

  • For assistance with importing your company and employee details from the previous year's version of BrightPay, please click here .

Please note:

BrightPay will initially download as a 60-day free trial (with full functionality). On purchasing a 2021-22 licence, you will receive a licence key on the invoice that we email to you. Simply select 'Upgrade Licence' on the 'Open Company' screen of your 2021-22 BrightPay software and enter and activate your licence key here. Your software will no longer show as a free trial and instead will indicate your purchased licence type.
