Licence Duration

BrightPay licences are sold per tax year.

If you purchase the 2019/20 version of BrightPay, you will be able to use it to process payroll for the 2019/20 tax year only. Your licence will not expire, in that you can keep BrightPay installed and revisit the 2019/20 tax year whenever you need. But when you need to process 2020/21 payroll, you will need to purchase a new licence for the new tax year.
