BrightPay Connect

Connect is an optional add-on that provides automated backup of your payroll data to the cloud and a powerful web-based self service dashboard for your clients or employees.

Connect is billed at the end of each calendar month based on your total number of active employees in that month. Payments for Connect are automatically taken using the payment details you set up in your BrightPay Account. You can save on your monthly bill by signing a 12-month contract.

Licence Duration

BrightPay licences are sold per tax year.

If you purchase the 2022/23 version of BrightPay, you will be able to use it to process payroll for the 2022/23 tax year only. Your licence will not expire, in that you can keep BrightPay installed and revisit the 2022/23 tax year whenever you need. But when you need to process 2023/24 payroll, you will need to purchase a new licence for the new tax year.
