Ordering for the new Tax Year

New independent BrightPay software is released every tax year in line with budgetary requirements, for which a new licence will be required should you wish to continue using BrightPay.

BrightPay licences are priced per tax year, and are valid only for the tax year in question (as opposed to from date of purchase).

Simply purchase online at www.brightpay.co.uk/order/ in order to receive your licence key by email. Licences will only be issued upon full payment.

Any budgetary or software upgrades required during a tax year for which you hold a licence will be provided free of charge. All paid-for software licences include free telephone and email support.


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.

Need help? Support is available at 0345 9390019 or support@brightpay.co.uk.
