Preparing for your move to BrightPay

Moving from one payroll software to another can sometimes be a daunting task, but with preparation this does not need to be the case. To help with this preparation, we have put together the following guidance to assist you with the migration to BrightPay from a previous payroll software, including terminology and methodology used in BrightPay.

  1. Check if your current software allows the exporting of employee information via CSV or FPS 
  2. Allow yourself enough time
  3. Choose a convenient time to migrate to BrightPay
  4. Familiarise yourself with BrightPay's terminology
  5. Still have access to your previous software at time of import into BrightPay
  6. Run a parallel payroll with your previous software

It is important to be aware that there is some information that cannot be imported and needs to be set up manually in the payroll software when switching to BrightPay. 

Key points to note

The following information cannot be imported:

  • Pension schemes cannot be imported.
  • Calendar information cannot be imported.
  • Student Loan deductions Plans will need to be reselected.
  • Attachment Orders cannot be imported.
  • If you have previously claimed Statutory Payments you will need to enter this amount into the “Additional Amounts” section in the HMRC payments Tab.
  • Previous P30 information is not carried forward.
  • Logos cannot be imported.
  • Pay rates, Additions & Deductions cannot be imported.
  • P11D information is not carried forward.
